You're right. I could have drifted out the race with the nut in place. I wish I had, considering how tough it was to get it out. I had to dress some of the swingarm threads where it had been previously staked, because the new nut didn't want to go on. It's all good now though.

Two different tools being confused here.

The ‘spanner’ with pins used for your swing arm assembly is a different beast from the C half ring style tool you use on the shocks

I’ve got adjustable types of both.
They are pin spanners no matter which direction the pins face in relation to the handle/driver.
