380 SL Head removal

I am getting ready to pull the heads on a 380 SL in car. I have been told there is a special tool for removing the back two head bolts which are not directly accessable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bob

380SL Head Removal

The 8mm Dog Leg tool for Head removal is no longer available. Does anyone have one they would SELL, RENT or LOAN? I would be happy to provide a security deposit on a loaner. Thanks, Bob

I ordered one on Amazon last week and got a reply stating they are unavailable and not sure if they will be remanufactured in the future. DOES ANYONE HAVE ONE THEY WILL SELL OR LOAN ME WITH A LARGE SECURITY DEPOSIT. Again thanks. Bob

OK, I did some supplemental Googling for you. I see that there is now this tool available - will it fit your needs?:

There is also a long thread here form someone who did the job on a 420:

Thank you for the update. I was told two weeks ago that this tool and the dog leg allen wrench were not available. I was able to order this tool yesterday. I will let you know if it works. Bob Smits
