Socket size for gas tank strap nut

I need an extra deep 3/8 drive socket to get the tank strap nut off.
I donít know if itís metric or inch either.

Does anyone know what size socket it is?

You are correct sir 👍🏻

We used a 13mm deep socket, a short extension and a universal joint.
A generous soaking of PB Blaster made everything easy.
