2004 x30 ZFT Allen size

Anyone know the Allen wrench size for the mounting bolt? Need to tighten but do not have one this large in my tool box.

Hw 12 fits good. The real size is probably an American size, but I used the Allen to just hold the head and tightened the nut side.

I can try to check later today, but if it's the same size as the Allen bolts that secure the stubby sections on the rear legs, I think it's 9/16. I know you can pick up a set of those 'L' Allen wrenches for under $10 at Lowe's or Home Depot. A set of sockets like above should run about $20 or so. Not a bad addition to a tool box.
In any case, I'll try to check after work, if it's not raining.

Whoops- just realized I'd never replied- size is 5/16" for the Allen bolts.
