Sounds like a "ball" breaker

Anybody know what size the nut is for the ball size 2 5/16?
The largest I have is 1 1/2 inch and the nut laughed at it...

On my hitch head (with the same size ball), the nut is 1 7/8". You'll need pretty good torque wrench to pull that too - I think it's 450 ft. lb. Best to take it to a shop and have them torque it for you.

Note, however, that most shops probably will just do it the way the others here are mentioning. You may have to ask if they have a capable torque wrench and if they would use it if you ask them to
When I had to redo my hitch I just stopped by a local shop and they torqued it for me for free. Just ask nice if they can do it for ya.

I'm thinking that is what mine is. I need to shop for a torque multiplier.

Ok. Before I get to drunk to walk, I went out to the garage. Looks like 50-300 on the HF 3/4Ē drive

Or as old Merle (aka: Buffalo Butt) at work once said when asked how he was going to torque a nut to 200# with a 100# torque wrench: I'll just click it twice.

Sometimes we miss the "Old Merles" don't we? Sometimes those folks can cut right through an issue and get right to the simple answer....
