    Rear whel axle bolts.

    I'm going to attempt adjusting the chain's slack, I have not measured yet but it looks pretty slack after 300 mi. I have the 19mm socket for the left side but not a 22mm for the right side. I do have a 7/8" which fits with just a bit of play..I'm I risking rounding out that bolt? Thank you for your help.

    That should be fine. I have done it many times. 7/8" is 22.2250 mm. Depending on wrench it may fit better than a cheap metric, I.e. Snap-on vs Walmart wrench.

    Jersey is correct. I use them interchangeably at work all the time. I use snap-on mostly.
    The nut isn't very tight at 65 ft lbs, so even a cheap socket should be fine

    Brian,

    Those are Knipex, a German company. I have these pictured wrench pliers as well as their Cobra water pump pliers. They are simply the most amazing hand tools I've ever used. They are a "get what you pay for" tool, and they're price often reflects that.

    Brian -- they are pretty good and as Larry stated not cheap. If you look at the Home Depot website and search " Knipex pliers" you will see what they make and sell for. They are first rate tools.
    Their home website -- http://www.knipex-tools.com
    Their videos about their tools. http://knipex-tools.com/media-center/product-videos/
    I would not hesitate to use them on the axle if I needed to but I do prefer a socket and torque wrench. Obviously one can't use a torque wrench with these "plier-wrenchs". Tony

    The 7/8 will work however it is always best to use six point wrenches and sockets on tight nuts. I hate using the 12 point variety on any nut or bolt that needs some torque applied because they are the ones that cause the round over. Harbor Freight has the 22 MM six point socket as a single piece for just a few dollars. Actually HF sells a decent set of metric sockets and wrenches pretty cheap and they are OK for the casual garage mechanic.
