SOURCE: head bolt socket type

It is a "triple square XZN" spline tool.  Put any of that into ebay or google and you can find it, or else flag down a tool truck (snap-on, Mac) and ask the saleman for one.

Part 1 of 3: Getting to the head bolts

Materials Needed
  • Eye protection
  • Gloves
  • Oil and coolant drain
  • Parts cleaner or brake cleaner
  • Shop rags
  • Socket set and ratchet1: Drain the oil and coolant. Put on your eye protection and gloves and drain the oilfrom the vehicle.
    Make sure the vehicle can not be started by removing the negative cable from the battery. Next the coolant will need to be drained so it does not leak when the head bolts are loosened.
    Step 2: Clean valve cover. Use some of the parts cleaner or brake cleaner to clean up the valve cover and as much of the cylinder head as is reasonable.Remove valve cover. If necessary, remove other components to make the valve covers accessible, and start removing the bolts from the valve cover.
    Once all bolts are removed carefully removed the valve cover from the cylinder head. If any valve cover gasket material remains, remove it at this time and clean any excess oil from the edges. Set the valve cover aside carefully as it will be reused with a new gasket once repairs are completed.

    Part 2 of 3: Pushrod engine head bolt removal

    Materials Needed
    • Head bolt socket (if needed)
    • Numbered cardboard
    • Rubber hammer
    • Socket set and ratchetStep 1: Rocker arm and rocker removal. A pushrod engine has long pushrods that protrude through the cylinder head and attach to the rocker rail.
      The rocket arm will need to be loosened first. Many manufactures have a specific sequence for removal of the rocker arm bolts. After the rocker arm is removed, the rockers will be unbolted.
      Set all rocker arms aside in the order they were removed as they should go back to the cylinder they were removed from.Step 2: Remove the pushrods. Remove the pushrods one at a time from the cylinder head.
      Put them into a numbered piece of cardboard as the pushrods will go back into the same slot they came from.Step 3: Loosen head bolts. Use the ratchet begin to break the cylinder head bolts loose.
      Each bolt will be loosened but not removed. Loosen all of the bolts before removing any of the the bolts all the way.
      Step 4: Remove the bolts. Place each bolt through a numbered hole in the cardboard in case the head bolts are different lengths so they can be installed back into the proper hole.
      The bolts may require a special socket depending on the manufacture.
      Step 5: Lift off the cylinder head. Once all bolts are removed, lift up on the cylinder headgently; the head should come free easilyIf the cylinder head sticks, lightly use a dead blow or rubber mallet to tap the cylinder head to be able to remove it. Set to the side in a safe area.
      • Warning: Cylinder head bolts have a specific sequence that is used when removing them. Consult the manufacturer's specifications for the proper removal sequence for the engine being worked on.

      Part 3 of 3: Overhead cam head bolt removal

      Material Needed
      • Socket set and ratchetStep 1: Remove the timing cover. The timing cover will need to be removed to gain access to the timing belt or chain.
        This is necessary because the cam shaft sits in the cylinder head and is attached to the crankshaft with either a timing belt or timing chain.
        Step 2: Time the engine to remove the belt. The engine will need to be timed to avoid damage when the timing belt is removed.
        Each engine is different and will have its own procedures to time. There should be marks on the camshaft and crankshaft that will be aligned to set the timing at top dead center (TDC)Step 3: Remove the timing belt. The timing belt tensioner will be removed or released to take the tension off the belt.
        Once the belt is loosened, it should be able to be slipped of the camshaft in the cylinder head.Step 4: Remove the head bolts. Every engine will have its own procedures for the order that the head bolts are removed or tightened.
        Loosen head bolts ΒΌ turn each in the order specified, which may require a special socket. Once all the bolts have been loosened they may be removed one at a time. The bolts must be organized or marked in case they are different lengths.
        Step 5: Remove the cylinder head. Once all the bolts are removed, the cylinder head may be removed from the engine. If it is stuck, tap lightly on the side of the head with a rubber hammer to loosen the cylinder head.
        • Warning: Most head bolts are torque-to-yield. These head bolts are single use only and once removed must be replaced. Torque-to-yield head bolts stretch when they are torqued to allow them to tighten properly and repeated application can cause the head bolt to break.
        Removing the head bolts can seem like a daunting process

I have a 3.8 V6 in my TBird. I am trying to remove the heads because I'm reasonably sure I have a blown head gasket on the right side. Problem is the the bottom rear head bolt won't break loos


you need use lots of pentrating oil let it soak in good you need a 6 point universal socket with extension you need high impact air ratchet that give enough torque to remove bolts in hard tight spots.for round off bolt head go to sears or go on line you can buy sockets remove round off boat heads.any time remove bigger bolts size 14M ON UP USE 6 POINT SOCKET GET STRONGER GRIP.12 POINT SOCKETS NOT STRONG BECAUSE SMALL GRIP TEETH WILL BREAK OFF UNDER MORE TORQUE AND STRESS..

How to change a starter motor


Disconnect battery, remove and mark wires and cable taken off starter, remove the 3 mounting bolts and remove starter. It looks like two bolts come from other side and bolt into starter and 1 bolt goes thru the starter into the bell housing/motor. Do the oposite to install. Here is a picture of your starter and a good place to purchase it. Wish you luck.

How to remove from the steering column the ignition braket of a 94 ford festiva


I just did this same job last week. There are two security screws on the top of the steering column that you need to remove. They are security screws, so they are designed to be difficult to remove to prevent theft of your car. There are two ways to remove the special rounded head screws. Naturally, there is no head on the top that you can just get a socket on, so you have to get they turned counter-clockwise by other means. If you have a sharp pin-***** style punch and a hammer, you can make a small dent in the rounded head with the punch and hammer that will allow you to get a grip on the bolt with when trying to turn it by hitting it with the punch and hammer. So first hit it hard at a 90 degree angle to make a nice deep dent or divet hole in the bolt head. Then use that hole to start trying to turn it by changing the angle of the punch pointing in the direction you want the bolt to turn. You'll be surprised, but the bolt will actually turn quite easily if you are very careful and are handy with the tools. If this doesn't work for you, the second method is to get a Dremel tool (with a mounted cut-off disk) and use that to grind a screwdriver groove in the top of the screw head so that you can simply unscrew it with a screwdriver. You could also grind flat spots on each side of the bolt so that you can grab it with a wrench or needle nose pliers.
The manual says to try using a pair of needle nose pliers first, because you just might be able to get the bolt to turn simply by grabbing it with the pliers if you are lucky enough to have the right pair in your tool box with a pointed enough tip (and good grip) that will allow good enough access. Usually the bolts are not that tight because they can loosen a bit after 20 + years.

Installing door handle ford festiva 1995


The Festiva door handle is very easy to replace. It is bolted on with phillips head screws that screw into the door. Simply remove the old one and use the same screws on the new one. Maybe you meant the handle that you pull to open the door? To replace that one you have to remove the door panel and then you can see the phillips screws to release it and then jusy unhook the rods and replace the new on the same way the old one came off.
