What socket for Ford 9" Pinion nut?

Anyone happen to know off the top of their head what socket is needed for the pinion nut on a ford nine inch?

I'm switching to a 1350 yoke and need to get that bugger off of there.

Thanks a lot.

Just received my new driveshaft with the new pinion yoke today and was hoping to stop by the hardware store after work to get the correct socket without having to go home first.

Just thought someone might be able to help out.

1 1/16 should do it

just a tip just after you break the nut loose and I mean exactly at that point , find a way to mark and count the turns until the nut comes off, you will need to re-tighten it exactly the same amount of turns, at that point stake the nut to hold in place, do not attempt to re torque cause you could crush the crush ring and loose the pinion too ring gear clearance

Yes it is a 1 1/16 socket. Counting the turns of the nut is NOT the correct way to do a crush sleeve.

No need to stake the nut on a 9", Use red lock tight.

if replacing the crush sleeve or installing a new gear you are correct but, he is just replacing the yoke and that is a good way NOT to change the clearances of the gear counting the turns...

red lock tight does not work real well on dirty or oily surfaces

I do it all the time without changing any clearances. As far as dirty surfaces,That is what brake cleaner is for.Pull the yoke off,Spray a couple squirts on the threads and Wa la! Clean threads!

not to mention, u can change yokes all you want, but if they dont measure exactly the same, what good is counting threads gonna do in the 1st place???
i agree with prostreet, it would be hard pressed to believe just because someone needs a bit of info that they are that naieve to not clean the threads on the pinion for re-assembly. and besides putting locktite on, it seems to me that when buying a new yoke that from my experience that it comes with a new washer and locking nut anyways...

Crush sleeve does not determine pinion depth, that is the purpose of the shims. All a crush sleeve does is pre load the pinion bearings.
