Does anyone know if someone makes a line wrench to fit the Oil Screen on our WR426's? I started to use a regular wrench and it started to round off the nut. Maybe Snap-on or Craftsman? Also, what exact size is this fitting? With the paint and it being rounded a little it's going to be hard to tell.
Thanx, :)

Sears.com, search for "flare nut wrench metric".

pretend it's flat and give it the gas.

I checked-out the "flare nut wrench metric" out on sears.com, and it looks like it only goes up to 21mm. Isn't the screen nut 24mm?

I saw a post that said to get a 24mm deep socket and a breaker bar for the first removal. I need to do mine this weekend and need a solid-solution as well.

I use a 15/16" deep 6pt socket. 24mm = .945" and a 15/16 = .9375. The 15/16 actually fits better and I found that my local auto stores had it readilly in stock, not so with the 24mm.
