Trying to drop the engine from my F4i...stuck on the swingarm pivot shaft that attaches the swingarm to the engine through the frame. Idiots at Honda have put some goddamn castle lock washers or some crap on the one side...so not only do I need a 27mm deep socket (which I bought) I apparently need a special Honda socket, part #07908-4690003, which they sell for like $120 bucks. Now, the castle nut doesn't really have to be taken off; I just need to keep it still while I wrench on the other side - inside the castle nut is an allen/hex socket, the only issue is that its a 12mm size. Does anyone know where I could get a 12mm allen key/ratchet adaptor? Or where I can borrow one of these stupid Honda sockets?
Here's what someone fabbed up to fit the washer, i figure its close to the Honda tool, but I can't bring myself to grind away on my new $18 27mm impact socket...and I don't have a dremel.
