Re: size of allen bolt

Is there enough room for a rachet and a 14mm allen socket or do I need to get an allen wrench

Re: size of allen bolt

I bought a regular 9/16" hex wrench at my local Ace Hardware store. Cut about 2" off the long end and glued it into a socket.

There is room for the ratchet once you remove the exhaust hangar.

You will need to have a hex socket in order to torque down the plug if that is your plan.

You will also need a 12mm hex socket down the road so the set of three at Autozone would be a good bet.

Have fun,

Loren

Oh Oh, DARN, I knew the answer to this one, but was beaten to it.

I am curious as to the Autozone "set" how much and is there a part #

Thanks

My first fluid change, I didn't have one. A 3/8" rod coupler (has 9/16 o.d. hex) is available at many hardware stores. Just drop it into a 9/16" or 14mm socket.

The Autozone set is a set of 3, 12mm, 14mm, and one other size. Can't remember the size, 16mm maybe. Seems like when I got mine a couple years ago they were $10.00. I suffer from CRS. That, and it's something I HAVE to have, so I buy it and don't think about the price.
