Use a open end wrench. Put the open end over the bar. A 7/8" wrench fitting = a 7/8" bar

ok, grab an adjustable wrench, then measure the opening after you tighten the wrench on the bar.

Yes, I believe that is the size for a non GT cougar.. Evilmess has the same size in his 68... I have the GT size in my 67 ( just under 1 inch). Are you going to replace it or did you just want to know what size you had...
