I was removing the transmission floor cover and had some trouble with the clutch screws. The driver set I have has sizes 3/16 and 1/4, but one is too big and the other too small. I got the 3/16 to work, but I feel that if the screws had been really tight I could have easily stripped them. Once I got them out I tried cleaning them (thinking that maybe they were just full of paint and stuff so the 1/4 would not drop in), but that did not help. My question is am I doing something wrong? Or is there a 7/32 size out there somewhere? I could grind the 1/4 inch down a little bit if necessary. Thank you,
Lee, My two cents worth: the new clutch head drivers are a hair off the original size, maybe just mass produced?. I did shave a hair off two of my ( socket set) drivers to make a tight fit. I also bought a NAPA set (screwdriver style) they seem to fit better than the socket set. Todd
Lee, I don't think there is 7/32 size in clutch head, at least I have not seen a fastener that size on my trucks. My drivers are from NAPA, somewhat pricey, but fit very well the fasteners on all my Chevys. Kent

I am in Dallas for work (enjoying all the closed restaurants!) and won’t be home for a couple of weeks. I’ll try grinding down the 1/4 inch and see how that works. Maybe I can find an open NAPA store around here and buy a set. It would be nice to have a set that will fit in my magnetic screwdriver; my current set only works with a 3/8 ratchet.
