What size torx star bit do i need to remove the 6 bed bolts on a 1994 ford ranger short bed?
Let me tell you from my personal expirience, you might as well forget about the t-55 torx bit, grind the heads off the bolts, remove the box, and then pul the rest of the bolt off. I busted many torx bits trying to take the bed of my 97 f-150 before i decided to cut them off and put in new bolts.
What size torx/hex socket does a 97 dodge ram caliper bolt use?

How do you remove a square screw head without a square screwdriver?
First, I think you mean a screw with a square socket, also known as a Roberts screw. (I’ve seen some old screws with square heads you turn with an open end wrench.)Any method you choose to try to remove a square head screw without a square head driver would be much, much more trouble than any cost it saves is worth.Screwdrivers are inexpensive. These screws are usually tightened or removed with a hand held power drill/screwdriver with the appropriate bit. A Roberts bit costs 1–3 dollars at a home center. If you don’t have a drill and want to remove it with a hand tool, you can buy an inexpensive screwdriver that comes with interchangeable bits. Your total cost would then be around 6 dollars. If this happens to be a deck screw sunk deep into a joist, it would be hard work to remove by hand and nearly impossible to install with a hand screwdriver.If the whole head is accessible, not countersunk, then you could remove any screw with a large, long-handled pliers or a vise grips. This might be the way to go if you have one of those tools and don’t have a square tipped screwdriver. Another method is to tighten the chuck of a power drill on the head and back it out with the drill.
What are bugle head screws used for?
Bugle-head screws look like this, with the sectional profile of the head looking similar to the bell of a trumpet or bugle:Bugle-head screws are effectively self-drilling and self-countersinking when used to fasten relatively soft materials, particularly drywall (paper-faced gypsum board), and types of lumber used for modern framing and outdoor decks. This can be a huge time-saver during construction.Bugle-head screws do not work well in harder woods, which lack the compressibility to move out of the way of the shank as it tries to self-drill, or of the head as it tries to countersink. That doesn’t mean that many people haven’t tried to use them that way, sometimes with relative success, but the result is often a broken screw. The better solution is often the more traditional taper-threaded wood screw, with separately drilled pilot hole and countersink.Bugle-head screws were originally designed (I believe) for drywall installation, in parallel with the development of cordless and corded “screw gun” drill motors in the early 1980s. The requirement for that application is to put the head of the fastener just slightly below the surface of the wallboard by putting a “dimple” in the the paper facing, without tearing it. This paper facing provides virtually all of the tensile strength of the board. The narrow shank and smooth flare of the bugle-head design served this function well. Once these screws became common on construction jobsites, other trades found their functional aspects appealing as well in comparison with various types of nails.Image above via Drywall Screw - FDS
What size bolt is it or a top bell housing bolts for a jeep 4.2 liter?
Are you looking for the thread size or the head size? The head is a six point torx bolt. You'll need a torx socket not a bit like the rest of the torx bolts on a jeep. If the bolts aren't really tight you can use a regular socket but run the risk of stripping the bolt. I just took mine apart but can't remember what size socket off-hand. You're better off buying a small set rather than individual sockets, you'll save quite a few dollars per socket. The thread I would like to say is a 5/16-24.
Windshield wiper problems in 95 chevy s-10?
My windshield wipers have been acting strange ever since i got the truck. when ever i turn them on they are very slow. however if it has been raining heavily for a while they are faster than normal. and sometimes (even if it HAS been raining) they will completely stop in the middle of a cycle, right in the middle of the windshield. if that happens, usually a little pushing or pulling on them will get them going again. I have already replaced the motor and they still did it even the moment after i put the new motor in. what can cause this and how do i fix it so i dont have to pull over anymore to get my windshield wipers going again?
Question about a drill bit for bolts and self tap screws?
I was looking for a drill bit, so I don't have to use a rachet, for a self tapping screw and it doesn't tell you the diameter to use. The diameter of the screw is 1/4. I went over to the area where the bits are, seen the bit I wanted and it had 1/4 on it but its way to small. The diameter on the bit on the package was meant for the body and not the screw or bolt it would be drilling. Why is this? If the head of my screw or bolt is 1/4 and I want a bit to screw it in the wood, shouldn't the bit measure the socket on the end since thats the part it would be screwing? Im trying to get a self tapping screw 1/4 diameter by 6 inch long with a bit to go with it. The diameter on the bit bag says 1/4 but is not matching the screw head which is also a 1/4. Am i going about this the wrong way?
What is a 10mm socket equal to in a standard socket?
As others have stated, no perfect correspondence exists between SAE and metric sockets.I measured a couple of 10 mm metric sockets and they actually measure 10.14 mm, providing a little bit of clearance around the nut.The closest SAE socket I have is a 13/32 socket, which measures 10.48 mm. This would probably be ok as long as the nut or bolt was not too tight, but the extra clearance compared to the 10 mm socket increases the risk that it might damage the nut or bolt head.A 3/8 socket measures 9.69 mm, too small to fit over the bolt head, and a 7/16 socket measures 11.18 mm. This is perilously close to the distance between opposite corners on a 10 mm nut, which is about 11.54 mm.
Removal of dash on 96 s10 blazer?
Start by disconnecting the negative side of the battery terminal. Then find the airbag fuse, and remove it. Remove the steering column cover screws, remove the instrument panel screws, pull the instrument cluster trim out after removing screws, then the instrument panel will be exposed, I think it has four or six screws holding it in place. After those are removed, pull straight out on the instrument cluster. Remove the knee bolster screws next,, remove the black cover under the dash, I think it is called an insulator. remove the screws that attach the glovebox to the instrument panel. Remove the speaker covers, they should either be phillips, or possibly T-15 torx screws. On the righthand side of the lower dash there should be screws there also that need to be removed. Remove them and the lower cover. Remove the stereo trim, and remove the heater controls, then look around for more screws that are holding the dash in place. Take it slowly and you may be able to remove the entire dash assembly back far enough to reach what it is you need. If not further dissambly may be necessary. Take it slow, I think you can handle it from here. Most of the tools you will need are 7 mm socket, 8 mm socket, a 10 mm socket, a long and short number two phillips screwdriver, a T-15 torx screw driver, or equivalent, a small flat bladed screwdriver for electrical connections. Take it slow, and you will be fine. I am hoping my memory is serving me right, it has been a few years since I have been inside of one of those dashes.
Headlights 2000 Blazer S-10 how do i adjust the aim?
First check to see if the bulb is positioned properly in the socket because on that year the housing is seperate from the bulb and the housing dose not need to be touched to change the bulb the bulb plugs into the back of the housing...if the bulb is in correctly and the housing needs to be adjusted you will need to park about 20 feet from a wall with the low beams on then there is a screw on the side and one on the top of the housing you will need to adjust the screws until the light shines on the wall in the correct place..
