That tool will definitely NOT work, it's too small. You could either chisel it off carefully with a punch (I would recommend brass if you intend or re-using the nut.)



Or you could use one of these King Gator Sockets, many on here have found that they work well for the nut.

It finally stopped raining and dried up enough to get out and finish stripping down the engine an frame. Got a chance to use the Gator King socket, and wow, it actually works.

Mated to a decent airgun and zip, came out like butter.



Thanks to all who posted about it, having had bad experiences with a lot of these "miracle" tools in the past, I never would have tried it without the stamp of approval and BTDT from you guys. I found about a dozen other places it comes in handy too, but I would not recommend it for rounded bolts and nuts, it makes them worse. There are plenty of specialized sockets and other tools to handle those.
