What Size Allen Head & Torx Model 20

Is the allen head bolts that hold on the rear drive shaft (caps that cover the u-joint to connect to the rear-end yoke) to the Model 20 a 3/16 size? Also, what size Torx bit do I need for removing the cover of the Model 20 rear pumpkin? Thanks for the support. --Duane

I believe the torx bit is a T-40. I'm not sure on the allen wrench however. If you are going to buy a torx bit, make sure it is one that comes with a lifetime guaranty on it. I went through 3 of them so far, and I still have five more to go. I'm going to have to weld a nut onto them because I have stripped out the insides.

My girlfriend said if I spent one more dime on my Jeep she would leave. Man I'm going to miss her!

Don't remember about the u-joint caps. The rear cover I just used a pair of vise grips to get those bolts out when I did my one piece axles. Then replaced them with regular bolts.
