    43mm box wrench.

    Or buy one from GH shop.

    Need to put this on to right tension, and get seal on right way round. Pliers mangle it if you are not careful.

    Unfortunately tooling is specific for the 'Doos. A normal tool set will be lacking a number of things.

    dam...can't find the thread...i think you take a 1 3/4 inch piece of abs pipe...heat up the end...place it on the nut let it cool and you have a vts nut removal tool...sorry though..can't be exact on the diameter of the pipe....maybe some one else can chime in on that

    I broke down and just bought the VTS tool. When I had to actually remove the nut it only took a few seconds since I had the right tool. You can either heat the pipe up and make your own or just remove the pump. With the pump out of there im sure you would be able to figure out a way to remove it. Goodluck.
