Falcon U-Joints

Six cylinder u-joints are quite small, as are the u-bolts that retain them to differential's yoke.  The u-bolts' retaining nuts are 1/4-24 (fine) locknuts, and require a 7/16" box-end wrench to remove.

Unfortunately, not all box-end wrenches are created equal.

The one on the left (Armstrong) will not fit over these shallow locknuts.  I had to go purchase the one on the right (Gray), which has a thinner wall.
