    Thanks. I finally got around to ordering the correct socket today:


    1/2" Drive Metric 10 mm Lexus®/Toyota® Double Hex Socket Driver


    Since Snap-On does not charge for shipping (only charged for tax), the cost actually came out to be less than the Assenmacher ASSS3054X-12 which has been on backorder (for me) since March.

    Now I should be all set to go for the next Prius Head Gasket job.

    When I google ASSS3054X-12 it comes up with a 12mm socket vs. 10mm for that snap-on? Maybe you're lucky it was backordered...

    There seems to be some “debate” on how it should be described.

    I have the “10mm” assenmacher socket (ASSS3054X-10) and it was clearly too small.

    holy crap...you guys dont mess around! Groundpounder have you done this kind of stuff before? I mean...dang, i'm all for DIY videos on youtube but...this is hardcore! I'm impressed man.

    edit: How did you learn to do all this rebuilding etc? In terms of removing the whole engine from the car?! I could probably do that but there is no way in hell I'd be able to put it all back together!
