Accessing center oil pan bolt under bell housing

Postby sevy » Fri Oct 16, 2020 9:10 pm

When I recoupled my cub, I should have done the oil pan first, but did not.
I got the pan on and all snuggled down, but can’t get a good purchase on the one bolt dead center under the bell housing. My universal and socket are too big, and all my offset box ends don’t have the correct angle.
Can someone please share a photo or part number for a tool that will reach it?
No way am I splitting and decoupling!
Thanks!

A 1/4" drive 1/2" swivel (universal) socket is the tool you need. I've got no pic. or part number but you can find what you need with a Google or Ebay search.

Try a 1/4" drive with 6" extension. Or if you have a couple of 1/4" drive socket sets, two of the shorter extensions, or an extension with a 1/4" drive deep well socket.

Any way, the answer is the 1/4" drive socket set.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I use a 3/8 drive universal with a very shallow socket built right on the end of it. I’ve had it for years, think it’s a craftsman.

I ordered a SAE set, which should be here Friday. Thank you all for eliminating many hours (and dollars) of more trial and error.

I have a good bit of 1/4" extensions. I have several sets of 1/4" sockets including deepwell. Is it possible from the sounds of this to go it without the built in universal 1/2" socket?

Yes but not very easily.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Shallow swivel socket was perfect; literally a 10-second job!
Many thanks!
