  • Indian Clutch Hub Nut Wrench

    Back in Nov-Dec 2019 issue of club magazine there was a How to article on making a Indian Clutch Hub Nut Wrench starting with a six point impact socket. Before I attempt
    to fabricate one, I was wondering if anyone knew if these every went into production? Thanks

    I replied to that article in 'Nuts and Bolts' about the Indian clutch hub nut wrench. As stated in the "Want A Wrench?" section, as advised, I sent an e-mail with “Indian Wrench” in the subject line to: AMCAtools@ gmail.com. I never received a response. I would also like to know if any were produced / available?

      Here's the Greer's wrench, it gets the job done... but probably not as well as the one in the article, that looks great. Greer's is 16" long so you can get some good leverage with it:

        another option is to get an 1 5/8 box wrench with slight offset and just grind a notch in the end just big enought to slip over the mainshaft,and grind the face flat to fit better over the thin nut.
        No welding.

          I did as Tom suggests, Folks,..

          The welding and carving upon the handle allows it to hold the nut firmly by resting upon the case; Face it, there is barely enough swing to use the wrench upon the nut alone, but it can secure the nut while the basket is then threaded into it, using the "spanner" shown here at the bottom. (It also can pull a sticky basket.)

          Then you know its torqued properly, and saves enormous time when swapping shims, especially if the powerplant is still in the chassis!

            Thanks; Harry, Tom & Cotten
            I'll try modifying a box wrench; my sawing, grinding and filing skills surpass any lathe work I would attempt.
