Yanmar 3gm30 transmission

I need a special socket to tighten my output flange,at the end of transmission. On my Yanmar 3gm30. The nut has 4 cutouts like a spindle nut .Anybody know where I can buy one,I called the nearest Yanmar dealer and he did not know what I was talking about. I have tried tightening by hitting the nut with a drift, but cant get it tight enough, Thaks in advance Ole

Do you have a photo of the nut in question? That would help a lot.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

ole-

A url is a Uniform Resource Locator...and consists of two parts. A prefix that tells the computer what protocol the resource uses, and the location of the resource.

For instance, a resource located on a webserver--an image, a webpage, a PDF file-- will start with "http://" which stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol.

Another example of a file located on a internet file server would probably start with the prefix "ftp://", which stands for File Transfer Protocol.

If you want, you can e-mail the photo to me and I'll post it for you. PM me if you want me to do that.

I think I know what you mean.

If so, this is what I do.

Get a socket the right size and grind it down so that only 4 protrusions of the right length and with.

If you have good tools get a cheep socket.

I have made over 10 of them for different things and only used them that once.
