damn E-12 bolts

Alright, so my starter went out on me the other day and I today got around to fixing it. Everything is going just fine and then I run across damn E-12 torx bolts, which, of course, I need new tools for. Granted this gives me a perfect excuse to buy new tools, but it's nothing that I would need for any other project. Why can't DC just use normal bolts for stuff?

Ok, I'm done now. Just had to vent a little. Starter is on and Jeeps fires up faster than it ever has before. So I'm happy.

Hey I replaced my starter a while back, no torx with mine.. but there was this one little bolt that was a PIA. Thus where was the torx on yours?

Mine has the inverted-torx as well on the starter. Don't ask me why DC wouldn't use hex heads on something as trivial as a starter

from what i've read and heard, the torx bolts were only on some of the older 4cyl engines. why? hell if i know. crazy DC logic i guess.

You could swap them with normal bolts once you get them out and never worry about it again!!
