30 mm socket

A question for all who has a 30 mm socket with a window cut out of it, can someone please give me the window measurement, I have one cut out but am not sure it is big enough, would like to get close as possible before tackling the slave cylinder. thank you

You just need enough room to swing the allen wrench a bit more than 30 degrees (assuming you have a 12-point socket). My window is 1 3/4" long x 7/8" wide, but it's a bit oversized. As long as the socket remains strong enough to handle the 160 Nm torque you should be fine.

And remember, no loctite in this area.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
