This is driving us crazy. We are trying to replace the #3 cylinder cover and to do it you need this HUGE allen wrench kind of thing. The TSRM says it is "SST 09923-00010". The smart asses at the Toyota dealer say they don't sell tools. None of the hardware stores or auto parts stores have this thing. Where do you get these "SST"s?
Thanks :) .

For that huge allen head try finding a big bolt at the hardware store, sandwhich a couple nuts on the threaded end and crank on it with a cresent wrench or monkey wrench.


edit: holy crap I just realize how ghetto that sounds... maybe someone else has a better idea (I hope).

My Toyota dealer said he can order them in for me.. My dealers great though, they will loan me some of these bizarre tools as long as i have it back by morning incase they need it. They also give me a HUGE discount on parts. I guess when they see its a supra they know ill be back again and again:lol:

Penticton Toyota is great if you ever need parts in the BC interior:)

The allen for the #3 cover is a 14mm... last time I checked on this SST, the price was $70+

The funny thing was that neither of the Toyota places here in the PDX area knew the exat size.

Owatonna Tool Corp makes Toyota's SSTs. I called them up years ago and got a dead tree catalog, or Google gave me this:

Some are expensive, some are invaluable. The right tool makes all the difference.

For more generic things like the huge Allen bolts holding down valve cover #3, I go to McMaster.

Last I checked (years ago) the dealers stopped selling the tools, 'cause the car is so old.

save the money

Get a bolt that fits in the the head part like a hexagon i believe...i could be wrong but find a bolt(perferrable long (Spelling error))
and put it inside the spot where the ellen wrench would go and turn it with vise grips.

Holy, i can't believe people are having such a problem with finding a bolt. I just went to lordco (local parts store) and bot a socket that had a 14 mm allen key on it for 7 bucks canadian. If you want a picture of it i can post it. Why rig something together and risk damaging them.

Yea, Bishop has the right idea. I couldnt find a 14mm hex, so i made one with a spare 14mm bolt and 2 14mm nuts. I just threaded the nuts on and tightned them with an impact gun (otherwise the nuts kept coming loose) and it worked like charm.

Thanks for all the great help!!! Seems like the Canadians have no trouble finding huge hex keys/wrenches and us Americans have to be more ingenious ;). We made our own using the bolt and the nuts. As conundrum says - works like a charm!
