A lovely old tool worth having on a trigear is Ford Wrench with the extended jaw, but hard to find since it went out of production in the 30s. A similar wrench that works great is a parallel jaw, adjustable wide grip wrench used by plumbers. Works the same just the handle is radial rather than parallel. With a shaft/pipe inserted into your wheel, you cant get a socket on the Matco nut. With one of these wrenches, it is easy to adjust and remove the axle nut on both the new nose gear axle and then slide the nut/washer, and whole wheel off the spindle, then block the spindle with a couple 4x4 blocks. See above how the jack and pipe into the spindle setup works.

Here is the radial wrench: Typically around $15.

I think they call that a Basin Wrench. Available at any Home Depot or Lowe’s.

Thats pretty neat....thank you. Up to now ive used an exhaust clamp on the
lower leg as a jacking point but your solution is much better.
