It's very rare that one of you guys who answer posts that are years old will reply to someone who is still here. I saw this post on Monday but wanted to see what the other replies would be.

Are you saying that head size is dependent on bolt strength, and thus wrench size will be diffeent when head size is different?

micky posted for all of us...

a wrench sized as follows: 1.5 times 5/8 or 15/16" plus 1/8" or a 1 1/16" wrench.

Instead of asking here DAGS and learn something and don't be critical of people trying to help you.

He made the statement. It won't hurt him to say what he meant by it.

What was critical?

Not necessarily true. Metric bolt head size differs depending on the standard - JIS, DIN,ISO or ANSI/ ISO or DIN/ISO. A 10mm DIN uses 17mm, while ISO uses 16 and JIS uses 14mm. That's why tool kits for European, Japanese, and American vehicles etc contain different assortments of wrenches. Only JIS (Japanese standard) uses 12mm and only DIN specific sets have an 11mm (used on DIN 7mm bolts - no other standard even HAS a 7mm bolt) Same for a 27mm wrench and 18mm bolt.
American vehicles tend to use DIN/ISO, so 11mm (same as 7/16) is included in american sets for use on some 6mm bolts ---
