Fast static timing question - what size is the crank nut?

I messed up my static timing today and must turn the crank to reset the distributor in the corrent position. Not having an elaborate set of tools, and eager to make just a single stop for the correct socket prior to visiting the car, can anyone relate the socket size I'll need to turn the crank? Help and insights appreciated.

you will have to reset the timing between cam and crank too probably- remove top timing cover and take off cam sprocket etc. )

good luck.

Front of crank shaft is difficult to reach with radiator installed. Much easier to jack one rear wheel off of the ground put it in 4th and turn the tire/engine. right rear works great for distributer and valve adjustments
