Rear wheel question

I bent a rear wheel last week and didn't notice until just now while changing the tire. I'm trying to price the pieces needed to replace it new and found item #3 - NUT, ADJUSTING on this Partzilla diagram.

I don't think I've ever seen a NUT, ADJUSTING in a wheel before. Has anyone replaced bearings in a rear, Gen III wheel who can offer guidance?

Thx

FSM section 4-35 refers to it as a bearing retainer. 41mm socket I believe, torqued to 58 ft.lbs.. I read a post on another forum where someone had to change rear wheel bearings and came up with a home-built socket.

Thanks Ray. I remember hitting a pothole in NC last week and have ridden about 900 miles since. I hope to find someone fairly local that can fix it, but in the event I have to replace the wheel I need to know what to expect.

I haven't yet located the thread I mentioned, however, should be able to re-use that retainer and just replace the offending bearing(s). You can use an '08-'12 wheel, and they won't have the retainer. Gen3 wheels will.

Edit - see this thread

Many thanks, Ray. That's what I needed. I've been searching for a 41mm hex key or nut to no avail. But at least I know what I gotta do.

Someone advocated using a 1-5/8 inch bolt head as an allen with two counter-tightened nuts to turn it.

Betcha you could make a 41mm hex from 1/4" steel, drill and make square a hole for a 3/8" drive ratchet........

1 5/8" is about 1/100" larger than 41mm. I'll try that. I don't know if I'm capable of "making" anything ... LOL

I've completely struck out on a used wheel. I hope to find someone who can fix it. Otherwise, it's $$$$ for a new one.

Some of the repairs done on their site are amazing! They're in Louisville, TN, so it wouldn't be completely out of the question for me to drive over. I'll call. Many thanks.
