Default What size socket do you need for the crankshaft balancer?

The book says a 28mm but it'* way too big. I own a 93 SSE can anybody tell me what size socket do you need for crankshaft balancer? Also what size do you need to take the drive belt off with?

Well I bought a 22mm and it'* too small so it'* a 24. The book says 28 I guess they are wrong but that could be for the newer models. The tension rewuires a 18 on mine.
