What tool do I use ?

Post  sg86coupe on Sat 27 Jun 2015 - 21:31

I need to change the hub on my ATI Super Damper, has 6 bolts that look like a torx has 6 points like a torx, but a 40 is to small and a 45 is to big. Any ideals ?

A 40 torx is loose, i'm afraid it will round off. And the balancer is new so when I find the right tool it should not be hard to get apart.

Torx don't round off easily. That's why they made them...and where they got their name. Cool

I just pulled out the ATI instructions and it verified the Torx Plus deal...
I have used T40, but it is loose.
