What kind and size nut(5 sided) holds the right motor mount to the medal part of it on the motor side? Have a replacement on hand but not the nut or bolt. Got it removed but can't separate it for the medal part of it.

Do you
have the same problem?

10 mm bolts are the motor mount bolts.

Are you talking about the diameter of the bolt or the socket necessary to remove it?

Ok, the size of the bolt is 10 mm. The size of the socket is not the size of the bolt, just the external part of the nut.

Thx I asked the question wrong I guess. Where can I buy a "5 or 10 point wrench" say 18mm not a standard 6 or 12 point. The nut looks like the dodge emblem. Google search turns up nothing.

Here ya go hope this helps. Its shape it like the dodge emblem on my repair manual. The manual says not to remove the nut/bolt but to replace the complete unit but they don't sell the mount with the motor side medal mount piece. Maybe I am reading to much into to there instructions. With all my tools I've got most wrenches/sockets but none with 5 or 10 points.

You can just use an open end wrench on the nut and use your socket on the other side to remove.

Nope. The nut is "5 sided" not 6 sided so an open end wrench only would have one flat surface to grip too. They need two flat surface to get a good grip(already tried it didn't work).

Did you ever get the nut removed? I was changing the timing belt at the fire station for a fellow firefighter when I came across the nut. Low and behold, the fire hydrant wrench works perfectly to break it free. Just replace it with a six-point nut after the job.
