July 16, 2008I have a ''63 F-100 292 V8. I''m rebuilding the starter and have found that I need a tool that no one seems to think exists. It is for a square depression in the starter wall that holds the coils to the wall. I asumed the tool would look like a Hex wrench only square, 5/16ths", but no one carries it *or* nows where to find one.

July 16, 2008Make one! I used a broken punch that just happened to be 5/16".
July 16, 2008I think you want a "square recess bit" and you can find them on ebay made by Dewalt and it looks like Ace Hardware sells them too. All I see on ebay are #1, #2 and #3 bits and I''''''''''''''''m not sure any of them equate to 5/16"
Son, you got a panty on your head
July 30, 2008You can use 5/16" key stock,and make your own tool.Key stock is square,and made from fairly harden steel.
Plus its cheap.Good luck.
