    I'm rebuilding the inside of the rig. Now I need to remove the seatbelts. The roller is held by a big big torx headed bolt. What size torx goes in there?

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure about what T-size to use, but if you've got a decent set of allen wrenches, a larger size allen wrench fits in there just fine. That's what I used to take mine off. No slip or anything, fits like a glove. Hope that'll help.

    What 78Jimmyish said- find the correct fitting allen wrench. It fits perfectly!!! Be advised that those bolts are tightened in really well.........Mine was a son of a gun to get out!!!!!

    It is a T-50. Those bolts are often (and should be) tight enough that they cannot be removed with a hex key w/out damaging them.

    I happen to be doing the exact same thing right now and could get mine out with an allen (broke two allens) mine was a t-50 and dought they ever changed but I did have to put an 18" breaker bar to it to get it loose. Does anybody know what these should be retorqued to? I'm just about ready to put my belts back in.

    I think it was a T-47 or T-50. I ended up just clamping on with a pair of vise grips. Allen will work alright too. Depends on how comfortable it's in there.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]

    What I used was a big fat allen wrench bit in a drill. Didn't have to worry about it breaking, and the bit fit nice and tight, so I didn't have to worry about strippage.

    These are T-47's. T-50s and T-45's are NOT the correct bits, and will tend to strip them out. Believe me, T-47's are harder to find, why would GM use an easy to remove bolt on seatbelts in the 80's?

    ahh i've never seen a T-47 and that would explain why the T-50 dosen't like to come out of the bolt. ever seen a T-6? i hadn't till i pulled the dist. apart on my lt-1 motor. at least they don't use the tamperproof torex.

    Bought the T50. Came loose with one hand. Think the previous owner already had them off once.
