Nobody has these and for some odd reason the arp kit which is the part # they gave me for the cobra jet heads I bought are hex nuts which will work on one of the heads but not the other. The socket wont fit on the inside bolts on one of the heads

We got the engine waiting on 5 arp 9/16 12pt nuts. If anybody has them please let me know I need them like yesterday.

Thanks

Check and make sure that you have both head dowels under the head where the socket won't fit. Then if so, if there is any room at all to shift the head around, try that and then see if the socket will fit.

Another option is to try a different brand socket. For example Snap-On tools oftern have a thinner wall thickness.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for your help guys. Another member sent pics of his grinder at work with one of his sockets and thats what we went with.

We took one of our craftsman socket and grinded away. Worked great
