Torx Driver Fail

Post by Whiterice97 on 4th June 2011, 10:46 am

So I was getting ready to open up my gearbox for the first time. It hadn't been cleaned since February (The guys from shorty did it since I sent it in to be repaired). And as I was getting ready to do it today, I saw that I needed a T10 Torx driver. I go and get one and then for some reason it wouldn't grab. Thus, not allowing me to get to the internal components of the gearbox. The screw was to small. So I go to Lowes for a "T9" but apparently they don't exist. I also tried a new bit but that didnt work either. I tried putting nail polish remover on it to remove and excess paint that may be on the screws but... nada. What am I missing?

The size you are looking for is probably a T7. Lowe's has the tool. It is located in the aisle with the screw driver sets. Kobalt 8-in-1 Precision Screwdriver Set. Item #239384. Torx sizes: T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10 and T15.

It so happened that my friend down the street had a T9. Which did the trick. I opened the box, cleaned/greased/lubed everything and now it is spinning like a top.
