My 1/2, 5/8" tool doesn't fit so I assume it's a metric size. I can't get my fingers inthere to do any trial fitting. Anyone know the size offhand? Thanks much.

15MM baby.
A 3/8 universal joint and short 15MM socket on a long extension does the trick!

I'll need the specific 15 mm dz wrench. I ground down a 15mm socket short but I cannot get it on the bolt.

Ok, I removed a bracket and was able to fit a small socket wrench and my cut down socket to loosen it. Thanks

Actually by removing that bracket, you can get a 15mm open end wrench on it which is how I tightened it.

I can usually get my hand down beside the engine and get a 15 mm ratcheting open ended wrench in there. I've only for enough room for one click though. It's not worth taking the coil and everything else out of the way. But if the engines hot I do get burned a few times on the air tube and exhuast. And with a 3 inch body lift makes it worse. I have to sit on top of the motor to get it lol

I always use a 15mm socket(3/8 not 1/2) next a swivel, and then usually two 3/8 extensions. I can get the bolt loose and out in about 3 minutes now. Any other combination I have tried is more difficult.

I don't even recall using anything other than an extension and "maybe" a swivel. Been a while.
