Default Crankshaft ratchet nut dimensions

Hello guys, happy easter again ...
Can someone tell me the dimensions of the nut? I need the wrench size and the height of the screw head with the ratchet claws.
I want to build a cap for a measuring device.

Greetings from Berlin

Andy

Wrench size is typically 1-3/8, but it's not uncommon for a car to present with a replacement nut with size 1-1/4, 1-1/2, or some other random measurement, so you should double-check your own.

Different sizes? That would be annoying...

It's just very difficult to measure.

A 35mm deep socket should fit maybe you can get one locally, test, and return it?

I want to thank you again for the help. Was able to remove the sensor adapter from the 3D printer today. Fits like a glove.
