Does anybody know the socket size for fuel filter cap?

What is the CORRECT size socket for the fuel filter cap on the frame?
Doesn't it also fit the oil filter cap?

I use an 1 3/8 wrench, i have to keep flipping the wrench over every quarter turn but it works just fine, done it numerous times. probly a little more time consuming than a socket but it saved me 20 bucks

Lisle makes a socket for it - $8 at the local auto parts store.

I bought the Snap-On combo socket for the oil filter and fuel filter. It sure is a lot nicer using that socket rather than the impact socket I used the first time doing the filter.

Snap on combo socket? I bet that was expensive. No doubt a quality tool. What does it look like MisterCMK.

What is this Lisle socket bismic?

I have a 36mm, it just seems a little lose, thought maybe I was using the wrong one.

The Snap-On part number is S3624. It is 24mm on one end and 36mm on the other. It has a 3/8" drive in the middle/inside. I think I only paid about $20 for off the Snap-On truck. I didn't know there were things on that truck under $50. Had it for several years and love it!
