Hub cone with 4 notches

1984 Miyata 610. Hub cones don't have wrench flats, rather 4 notches. What tool please?

They should just take your ordinary cone wrenches (13, 14, or 15mm). Some of them will take your choice of 2 different sizes of cone wrenches.

Without a picture, I would guess Suntour.

If they're Suntour cartridge bearing hubs, they use this tool.

A pin spanner might work well enough if you don't have the suntour tool.

I never had any luck using a pin spanner on those. They are sealed bearings in any case, if I'm not mistaken ( I often am).
