    Have you checked to see if Autozone.com has that info? They have many repair manuals online for free!

    Lowe's has a set of Kobalt keys with a T-handle for like $12. Sears and autozone sets are very full sets and are over $20.

    It is a 9mm allen, I finally found a set of Allen wrenches that included a 9mm at Home Depot for around $11, Sears did not have one, nor did O'Rielly's

    These are 9mm hex bolts. Had to search for a 9mm, finally saw one at Lowes of all places, bought a set of allen wrenches. Works well.
