    So I'm working on gators but found the same thing on most everything I wrench on. WTF is up with having to use both metric and standard wrenches, I know a few sizes are very close but when everything is supposed to be metric.....like I said WTF... everything on this gator has been metric until I get to the tranny drain plug, took a 1/2in, then the clutch cover bolts...3/8 and both were a perfect fit. My last bitch is with the clutch puller threads, suppose to be 14mmx1.5 and that screws in good for about a 1/2in then it starts working on the threads of the puller bolt, like it's stripping it, this was on 2 different clutches, I got both off and still have yet to try a 9/16 fine thread....but i will.

    Yep...gonna get even worse with so many parts made overseas. Even American co are mixing threads and fasteners depending on where the parts are made. I just keep both on hand to ease the frustration

    100% Agree. Make it one or the other! I end up with twice as many tools out as I need. You can tell I'm real frustrated when I have both racks of sockets and both racks of wrenches out on the floor with me at the same time just to save trips back to the box. :mad:
