    1940 Chevy Coupe front bumper nuts are 11/16. I'll agree, I don't use it as much as 9/16 or 1/2in, but they're definitely not useless!

    ^^^ as well as 40 Chrysler bumper bolt nuts

    "Back in the day" Craftsman 1/2" drive socket sets had a 19/32 12-pt socket. Only place I ever used it was on an Allis Chalmers WD (IIRC) .... fit a steering shaft block inside the frame.

    Old military vehicles seem to be covered in 11/16 bolts and nuts.

    11/16 nuts ( wrench size ) go on 1/2 bolts or studs. ( subtract 3/16 ) 3/16 is your commom denominator. Another example: 9/16 nuts go on 3/8 bolts or studs.
    Formula will not work on 12 point nuts.

    Usually a 1/2 inch bolt will have 3/4 inch head.

    No, GM has not built 100,000,000 (that's 100 MILLION) LS motors. The article refers to the "original" small block-- 265, 283, 302, 305, 307, 327, 350, 400 (did I miss any) variety.

    Obviously the vast majority were not LS engines, but read this from the link

    So the exception is the rule? GM made 99,999,999 LS motors and one 283. OK.
