Do you have a repair manual?
What are you having a problem with?
There should be 6 bolts on the manual hub.

There is a snap ring around outer edge that you can get with a pick of some sorts.
Here is exploded diagram I got from someone:

The large outer ring is very hard to see, but trust me, it is there.
It is what holds the aluminum body in place.

That big nut with the four notches requires a special socket. Got one here if you're close to the bay area.

The dood at Autozone rented me a socket with 6 notches. Looks like I need one with only 4? If thats true my day is over, Autozone is closed.

Alot of times you can get it with a large screwdriver.
Or make one out of a piece of pipe.
There will be two nuts in there, but of course you know that already by looking in your manual.
You won't be able to torque wrench it, but you can probably get it close.

Or just enjoy that beer and catch it tomorrow.

Mine has an inside diameter if 2 3/16" and has part number KD-2467 USA. It was from a 87 F250 I used to have. I also used it on my Dad's 92. Anyone want it?

That nut is supposed to be torqed to 160ft/lbs, I couldn't get it off with a screw driver. I was able to rent a kit that had various types of hub sockets. I just went through this last week replacing the rotors on my 93. Once you get the first nut off, there will be a lock ring under it and then another nut like the first one. The second one is real easy to get out, only torqed to about 50ft/lbs. Then the whole hub rotor assembly will come off. Dont get the nuts mixed up when reassembling. The second nut has a pin on it for the lock ring. It's how the bearing adjustment is maintained.
