Anyone rent out the tools for this job?

Anyone know where to get the required socket for a good price?

I'm not too worried about the cam lock tool.

Thanks

Dustin

Don't forget the correct tap to clean the threads in the block.

I have a full thread cleaning kit so I should be good there unless the head bolts use an odd metric size? You wouldn't happen to know it off hand so I could check would you? :)

wut? It's m10x1.5, but you really shouldn't have to clean them with a tool ... vac and air.

If you are looking to clean the threads you should use a proper thread chaser and not a tap, as it can distort the threads making them loose and giving you an improper fit.
