Loose Nut Behind d' Wheel
My '03 Talas blew a seal in the damper, so I have to take it apart for the first time (very low miles due to injury, but still out of warranty). The Manitou manual says to use a 26mm 6 pt socket. Local hardware store only has a 12 pt one. Home Depot had no 26's, and I haven't hit Sears up yet to see if they have one. If I can't find a 6 pt, can I use the 12? I'm guessing the risk is rounding off the aluminum top cap. Has anybody done this?
