These are typically called "Fairy Head" Bolts. 1/2" or 13mm are similar in size, so you can use either one in a pinch. I would try the 1/2" but if it seems too loose use the 13mm.

Removing the head cylinder

New on this forum, I'd like to solve a problem on my jeep TJ 2.5 1999.
I broke the engine and now try to dismanteling it part by part but cannot find exact socket for the head cylinder bolts! It's not Torx, not 12-pan skt; I went to local Jeep dealer and did not had an answer (not very helpful as usual)!
Could someone told me what kind of key or socket I need?
Thanks in advance.

Levis, Quebec.
