  David go online try to find 6 point wrench 17mm if I remember correctly. .  I bought a Craftsman years ago.  It works great.

I'll start by looking in the garage.  With 3 generations of tools, I might have what I need.  Since I have already filed it down some, a 16mm or 5/8" is already too loose.  Next time I look at it, I plan to file it flatter and try a 15mm or 9/16", and then a tool that's older than I am, if the wrenches don't work.  I hope that works because I don't want to go to plan C, and really don't want to go to plan D.

I clamped the vise grips as tight as I could, with no luck.  If filing the sides flat and using a smaller wrench doesn't work, I will try to make a notch in the edge that I can catch with a chisel and help it along with a hammer.  That was a last resort for trying to remove an oil filter decades ago.  The shell crushed inside the filter wrench, so the only thing left was the base plate.  The filter had been on the car (not my car) for way too long and was stuck pretty tight.

Make sure when u install new one, lube the oring.  And find yourself that 6 point wrench.   As far as getting old one off now.  It much tougher but if you use a dull chisel and on the rim of the cap  if can be removed.

This weather is ridiculous. lol       

I rode to do some errands in town yesterday.  I think it got up to 55F.  Today i rode about 50 miles on slow backroads and Wing said 61F.  

 

Problem is the rain is coming again and i can barely get the heavy Wing through the yard now.  I have a path of gravel that is still mushy from all the rain we have been getting.  Car tire keeps pushing through.  One of the benefits i like.   M/C tire wouldn't have made it nearly as easy.

Burned a pile of limbs today. Roasted some smoked grillers. Went for a ride to cash check at bank 10 miles away and about 40 miles @ 36-37F later made it home before the big snow later tonight.    Was actually nice today since  there was very little wind.  People really stared at me funny.  Lol.

Looked at it... I screwed up my Achilles’ tendon so right now my foot is in boot, so no motorcycle riding for me right now.  Thankfully, it looks like snow is in the forecast so that will take away the urge.
