Hex Head Size on Fixed Bearing Journal

I really like the Clymer's Manual, but why don't they give sizes for bolt herds, torx heads, etc? (unless I'm missing it) Can anyone tell me the size of the Hex Head for the Fixed Bearing Journal on the Final Drive?

Thanks!!

That's exactly what I needed to know. (thanks for the pic too) Now I just need to find one. I have looked at numerous locations and it seems everyone has them up to 10mm. Might have to find it in a set.

Thanks again!

Autozone will have a three pack set the includes the one you need for this. Duralass is the trade name for the set, think the one in the photo is part of the set.
