Harmonic Balancer Bolt Question

Ok, finally, after 9k miles I got around to checking my balancer bolt. My understanding is that the ones with issues are 13/16, later version engine have a 1" + bolt size and they do not have the same issue. Can I please get an amen on this understanding so I don't have to go buy a set of friggin sockets, please???? I've looked everywhere and I do not have a socket big enough to fit this thing, I only have sockets up to 1" and a wrench (obviously) ain't gonna work.

1 1/4" socket, yes. 2005 QC.

Did not need any tightening.

130 ft/lbs of torque I believe is the spec. I could only get to about 80 lbs and could not keep the harmonic balancer to sit still.

I have not heard of anyone with the big nutz needing tightening.

I know the Loctite fix is suppose to work but I'm just thinkin here.....
What if the 13/16th bolt could be replaced with the 1 1/4" bolt. Would that be extra insurance that the thing won't come loose again. Has anyone tried this? Can it even be done?
