Socket sizes?

Does anyone have a list (or know where I can get one) of all the socket sizes for the T140 engine? I have a normal imperial set which covers all the small stuff, I just want the bigger stuff.

I could measure up I suppose but if someone has a list that would be better as some of mine aren't quite perfect for measuring! I guess some could be whitworth as well... I'm more used to Metric for sockets. Imperial is what I use for measuring, nothing else!

Any idea what the gearbox one is?

Cheers for that! Just ordered those sizes too as my set only goes up to 3/4". I made the mistake of selling all my tools two years ago when I lost my job so I'm building it all back up again slowly...

Oh nice one! I assume a box socket is the normal type to use? They are strong enough?

Done up FT?

If that one's the same as the one I bought (from a different ebay shop - looks the same to me), it isn't long enough to get a tommy bar through - the mainshaft is in the way! I found an old socket that just fitted into the end (think it was a 5/8" Whitworth) and had it welded into the box spanner. Works a treat now. But before doing this, the box spanner wasn't up to the job.

The socket sizes given above, plus the smalller sizes you've already got, should be useful for just about everything on a T140. Only things they won;t fit are steering head adjuster, fork top nouts & front wheel spindle bearing large nut, and I think that's about it. Thses are easy enough to turn using a large adjustable spanner anyway.

Okay, I'll see about the socket thing. I prefer using 1/2" breaker bars for everything anything. Sounds like a good idea!

Luckily, I don't have any of those things as it's got a GSXr front end!

Cheers mate
