1/4" hex truss rod nut

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a '94 Jumbo Centennial that's in near mint condition.



I went to adjust the truss rod and it had been somewhat rounded off.


I decided to replace it before it's too far gone.


Couple problems -


1. The hex is 1/4", not the standard 5/16"


2. The routed opening is too small (lengthwise) for the standard wrench which has the bullet type end


I'm going to modify a wrench so it will fit in the opening then try to remove the nut and check the thread size to see if it's a 10-32


The nut looks to have a groove going around it which normally designates a left hand thread unless that's just something that happened to it from the previous owner while rounding it off.


I have the means to make anything special I may need but was wondering if anyone else has ran into this?
