Sorry for such a lame question but I am pulling my heads today and need to pick up the correct socket on my way to my shop. Manual doesn't say.

I appreciate the help.

If you don't have them you might want to get a 1/2 inch and 7/16inch torq. adaptor.

I didn't use them on the frotn cylinder, but when I went big bore, I used them on the rear.

There are still a couple I could not do.

I have also wondered if 1/4 drive tq wrench would work on some of the bolts???

I was able to torq every bolt using the adaptors. I have a higher end 3/8 in in/lb torq wrench that is pretty small along with a regular sears ft/lber. Just put the torq adaptors at 90 degress angle to the wrench. The left rear back ones are tight but just do small turns before starting over again.
