Help with bolt removal!!!

I'm pulling apart a 1.3 GT engine to ship.
I'm stumped at how you get to the head bolts!!! I don't have a socket thin enough to get down there it would seam...

Maybe I'm tired and it is hot here so give me a brake if it's something stupid ok.....

Re: Help with bolt removal!!!

The gti head bolts are the inside out bolts (the tool will go inside the bolt head, like a torqx but it's not a star pattern). I'm going to sears to get my tool to remove my gti head off the block. You've got a g13b engine block also correct?

Re: Help with bolt removal!!!

Nope, it's just a regular HEX bolt..
I'm guessing 8~10mm for the tool.

Re: Help with bolt removal!!!

they do come in handy....

you have to have them to remove the instrument panel on samurais

and for some strange reason you have to have torx to lower the steering column under the dash... why torx? why couldnt they have used regular bolts?

Re: Help with bolt removal!!!

Man am I having a BAD day!!!

After I went back in the garage I looked at them carefully and shot a little air on the top of the "bolt" to get rid of oil and there was a HEX!
So out comes the 3/8" hex socket and away I go.....3 loose.....#4 SNAP!
Oky dok out comes the regular allen keys with a little pipe on the end.....SNAP.....the ball end comes off...doesn't matter it's still good with out the ball.....the key has about a 1/4 turn and will not loosen...try the others.....ALL the same.....CRAP [email protected]$%*(*)_*().......I'll wait to pick up a new socket .....Oh and my tools were Gray/Proto so it's not cheapy stuff.
What the heck is the torque spec on them 300lft/lbs????

Re: Help with bolt removal!!!

Metric fine thread bolts are self locking . It's amazing what it takes to break them loose . Make sure you get a good quality socket , your going to need it .
