    Does anyone here know the sizes of the sockets needed to get the compensator nut and the clutch nut off? Thanks

    The compensator bolt on mine was 13/16" but I am not sure what the clutch nut is. I am sure someone here will answer that one soon.

    When you get your HD Factory Service Manual, all things like this will be answered! Here is the info from MY manual ('03 UC):

    Compensator nut: 1 1/2" socket - torque = 150-165 ft-lbs. (see new tightening procedure and specs from HD)

    Clutch hub mainshaft nut: 1 3/16" socket - torque = 70-80 ft-lbs. (lefty)

    Your manual may have different information.

    TQ

    ...and that is why I spent the $60.00 on my service manual so that those specs would be there for me.:)
    Glad I bought it!
