Clutch Head Bolts

How do you guys take the bolts out that hold on the rear fenders?Is there some obscure store somewhere that still sells clutch head tools or do I have to grind off the heads?

Re: Clutch Head Bolts

They make the tool but we generally use a torch cause it easier. Don't waste your money using the screw driver type tool. Generally they are rusted on too tight to remove by hand

Re: Clutch Head Bolts

Snap-on tools sells one. I have one that a buddy left in my box years ago. I think a 55-57 car parts place sells a kit as well but I would just grind or torch them out as suggested because they will almost always strip out.

Re: Clutch Head Bolts

The clutch head screw drivers are hard to find. I agree with the above of grinding or torching them out. Or find a large phillips screw driver and grind the tip down till it fits.

Re: Clutch Head Bolts

Interesting. Thanks guys. Definitely planning on just grinding off the ones on my bed, but I might buy a tool just in case I ever do a restoration.

I ran into the same problem, were to find a clutch head screw driver. I looked at every hardware store in town and found nothing. I did find some on Snap On's web site, but like everything else they sells it cost alot for just one. I ended up finding a set of 4 at Chevy Duty witch is now called American Classic Trucks. Here's their web site. http://www.chevyduty.com/frame-store.html
