View Full Version : Another oil priming question

03-30-2004, 08:37 PM
Did a search about priming the oil system, but came up blank for what I need to know.
Does anyone know the size of the tamper resistant Torx bit for the bolt holding the clamp on the cam synchranizer? I have looked at a couple places, but have not found any of the larger Torx bits for the tamper resistant type. I am going to do some calling around, but would like to tell them the size I am looking for.
As always-- Thanks in advance for any assistance given.

I think it's a T-40, got mine at autozone.

I snapped 3 of those bits so i ended up welding a bolt to that screw..and it came off with some force. I went to the store afterwards and get an allen screw exactly the same.

I just use a small propane torch to heat up the aluminum a bit then use a set of vice grips to turnt he torx bit till she's loose, then I replace it with a bolt. :)
