    Hey everyone. 05 Tacoma 4.0 which I unfortunately have to do a head gasket on :\

    Been looking for the bit I need for the cylinder head bolts and I'm having a hell of a time finding it (Double Hex or Bi-Hexagon 10mm). I searched the forum, came up with the bit I need but not really where to buy it.

    I know I can buy it from Toyota, but I think they charge like 40$. The SnapOn one seems to be only 20$ (Part# SADM10E) but I can't seem to find it for sale anywhere, including when I search on SnapOn's site. This is all I've found proving it's existence:

    It's like they stopped selling it. I find the triple square bit (FTSM10E) but I know theres a difference between triple square and double hex.

    Does anyone know where I can get this bit? It doesn't have to be SnapOn, but a quality bit that isn't going to strip the bolts. Or if anyone is in NJ and can loan me one, that would be great also :) Thanks!

    BlueT.. I don't think harbor freight sells it. I have one by me and I am there quite often but I can check again. It's not a typical bit like a Torx or even a triple square, which I have from working on my Audi. Triple square is very similar but the angles are a a little different. Triple square is common to European vehicles and double hex or bi-hexagon common to Japanese vehicles (from what I've read)
