RE: [DML] Angle Drive installation - tips?

There are two different sizes for that nut - someone chime in here that knows what they both are - either way, both can be purchased at Pep boys or your local auto parts store.  You may need a 1/2" breaker bar too...

Hey gang...

Well, I ordered a "new" angle drive kit from DMC, and will be swapping 
out the presently broken one at this Saturday's ODOC Tech Day.  The kit 
came with decent-enough instructions, but I was wondering, though, why 
it's necessary to loosen the hub bolt?  Can the A.D. be swapped without 
doing this?  I don't think I have a 32mm socket, nor where to get one 
readily.  Doesn't it just bolt on to the rear of the hub assembly and 
"poke through" ot the front and into the dust-cap, or am I missing 
something about how the a.d. is attached to the hub assembly?  (I have 
not looked back there recently, and my ship manuals are at my mechanic's 

Also, what is recommended to lube the lower speedo cable with, and how 
to lube the entire length of the cable?

Any tips/advice/BTDTs would be much appreciated!
