A lot of places carry this now.

Pep Boys has the Lisle brand, AutoZone has an "OEM brand".

For pro quality, Snap On, Hazet, or Stahlwille.

Baum Tools (www.baumtools.com) will have the Stahlwille.

Stahlwille Tools NA (www.stahlwille.com) will have it.

Samstagsales.com offers both the Hazet or Stahlwille.

Snap-On truck or www.snapon.com

Or, order it by local part number from your dealer.

The one I bought from Baum is made by Stahlwille for MB and has the MB star and part number on it.

a version of 5 cyl turbodiesel. I think they designated the 617 engines as 617.950, then 617.951, then 617.952. At some point during production of 950 MB switched from the single hex screws to double hex, but 951 and 952 were made only with the double hex.

Gotcha on the 951. I should have known.

I got a 12pt/double hex bit for my 603... or is that 961 ... at Pep Boys. Fits into a 13mm socket and is just long enough to work on the recessed 603 head bolts. I think it was part of a set of 4 for less than some places want for a dedicated bit.

Many other cars use this style of head bolt drive.

Pete:
You should refer to your engine type by the first three numbers-617- not the sub-type listed after the decimal point.
