    Transmission Output Flange Socket (30 mm thin wall deep)

    Found a good and cheap socket available in stores for this application. It is a GearWrench 30 mm deep 12 point socket. It does not say it is thin wall, but it is. The part number is 80826. It cost me around $10 at Advance Auto. I believe Sears sells this brand also, so it should not be too difficult to source.

    I did a bit of research, did not find this information previously. My apologies if this is a repost, but figured it would be worth mentioning for anyone else attempting this job.

    I broke 3 other sockets on a very stubborn nut (even w/ applying heat, etc.), so this socket appears to be a quality piece, and much cheaper then the other specialty sockets that are not too readily available (facom, snap-on, etc.).

      Good info.
      Just got a quote of $50 for a non genuine 30mm thin deep wall socket from SirTools.
      Not paying $50 for ONE socket.

            is this impact rated? I know it is an old thread, but was curious if anyone had hit it with a good impact gun.

              I just bought a Great Neck 6 point socket at Autozone and grinded it down. It only needs thinned out about 1mm in diameter. I've been using it for years. Just another option. Yours sounds better obviously, as it works right out of the box.

                pretty much did the same. Would have been nice to know there was one that worked out of the box

                      I don't believe it is impact rated but I used this exact socket with a good quality impact this past winter with no issues. Great socket for a job like this.

                        Almost 4 years later and this thread is still helping others out. I actually googled for the size of the output flange and this thread was one of the very first results.

                              hmm interesting. I bought the exact socket mentioned, went to use trial fit and it was too thick.
