Yeah, I got an old ground down wrench too, but the socket is much handier. The box end wrench was too heavy of material, would not turn in the available space between the nut and the carb body. The wrench is a Bonney (Snap On copy) and the box had about a .718" OD - the socket I modified is a Husky with an OD of .656" (the smaller the better).
If you got a socket you want modified, pay the postage and I'll do it for a donation - put a little something in with the socket when you send it and I'll accept it. If you want me to provide the socket, then the cost of the socket plus postage and a 5 spot will be adequate.
