52 chevy pickup window screws

Help! Where do I find a screwdriver for the weird heads on the screws that retain the triangle vent window? This is a 52 Chevy 3100. Thanks!

Chris

What do they look like? I have personally never seen the screws on a 52 pickup but some manufacturers used a figure 8 screw head way back when. Could this be one?

Their called a "Clutch head" and LMC trucks has the tool. http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/ca/full.aspx?Page=31


Personally, I removed a lot of them with a flat head screw driver before I ever got the right tool.

I believe they are figure eight screws. I was tempted to try a flat head but there is rust on some of them and odds are I will just end up stripping out the heads. I'll do an Internet search and see if you can still pick up a screwdriver for figure eight heads.

For goodness sakes, I told you what it is, it's a "clutch head".

It looks like a "figure 8".



This is what the tool looks like.


I bought a set off the Snap On truck back in 1978 for my truck.
