No 12MM Allen wrench in the tool kit, which is really quite sad. No Sears close.

Pigford said "You can often use on old bolt - lock a couple of nuts on the thread then put the bolt head in the allen key-hole and use that as a wrench"

That was my next step, getting a nut welded onto a 12MM bolt. There was so much torque involved, I didn't think just double nutting it would have worked.

Pigford- What is a "Baglux", and are those stock colors? Very nice, hadn't seen that combo before.
