Question starter bolt socket

Does anybody know what size/type torx socket I need for those rediculous starter mounting bolts?

And if I can get the set from NAPA, or Sears, or some other place local to me?

TIA,
Buddy

Is this for your '97 TJ? If so, my '97 TJ uses standard hex head bolts to hold the starter in. I just had it out to replace my clutch 4 weekends ago. But yes, Sears and NAPA have complete sets of Torx head adapters. Just make sure you also buy a separate T-55 since most sets don't include a T-55 but your Jeep uses that size in several locations.

It may be. I haven't actually looked under my jeep yet. It's pretty cold here right now.

Although I appreciate the time, I have no idea what this says. I found this website, which says that the bolt head is weird, if it's not then I'll be fine, but I don't want to start on it & then find out that I need some weird tool for it. I'm guessing it means its a 3/8" hex head bolt just like Jerry said.

Nothing frustrates me more than having to stop in the middle to run to the parts store.

Thanks,
Buddy

x50000 on grabbing a T-55. I think I have at least 5 of them floating around in my garage at all times. The Walmart near my house has stanley torx sets for 10 bucks. Definitely worth picking up if you don't have any torx sets. Stanley is about as cheap as I would go or you are going to wind up shearing the little head tips off on the cheaper ones in a crucial situation. Usually at a time when no auto parts stores will be open.

Just for those of you that were curious, I go the starter changed out & everything works beautifully now. I will say however, that my fingers were starting to lose feeling. It only took about 30 min to do it, & the starter mounting bolts DO IN FACT have a weird torx-type head on them, but a 12 point 3/8" socket got them on & off without incident.
Now the jeep starts better than it ever has since I've owned it.
Maybe that was the problem all along.
Later,
Buddy

Wow, that's odd that your '97 TJ and my '97 TJ have two different styles of bolts holding the starter on. Then again, my '97 is a VERY early '97 was made 3/96 and it even uses some YJ parts, especially in the electronic sensor area.
