Hey guys. I'm just looking to verify before I run out to buy a wrench at Harbor Freight. Can anyone tell me what size the bolts holding my front hub on are? I just got a flat and need to take my wheel off.
I'm a mechanic and I left my tools at my shop today (so that I could start riding my bike in). I have no problem running out to get a cheap wrench. I'm thinking since its a 70's Schwinn we are probably talking SAE sizing and not metric... It looks and feels to me to be a 1/2" or maybe 9/16", or maybe even 7/16". I really don't know for sure and I keep second guessing my self. I'm sure I'll figure it out, but if one of you knows off-hand that would be great.
PS: I hate adjustable wrenches with a passion so please don't go there. Something about working on 60 year old Jeeps that have been sitting in some farmer's field. Rounding off "F" script bolts on a Ford GP because I'm using an adjustable wrench is not an option.
