Pitman nut size

Anyone know the correct socket size to use? Searching shows 185 ft lbs to reinstall, correct?

I can't get a 6 or 12 point 1.250" socket on mine, so it must be 1-5/16"

I was just handed a 1 5/16 and 1 1/14 sockets, 3/4 drive wrench, and 1000 ft lb impact. I'll give it another go and see what happens!
