    Thanks guys I would make my own but have no heat gun and I can't find my blow lamp since I've just moved home so I figured buying a socket would be the cheaper option.
    Just wanted to be 100% on the size becouse if you checkout all the threads on the vts nut they all say different sizes :/

    I'll measure it right now and let you know for sure. FYI, you could probably get the PVC hot enough to mould with just a cigarette lighter - it doesn't take much.

    When I found the right deep socket for the nut it, the ratchet wrench would not go on, because the VTS extendes thru the nut about 6 inches long, I had to take the pump off and use a crescent wrench to turn the socket,

    Remove 4 nuts holding vts motor then pull motor out of the housing and it slides right back
