I'm pretty sure its either a T50 or 55. If I had to pick between them I'd say its more likely a 55.

There is also a chance that its a 45. Definitely one of those three sizes.

Thanks. T55 - I guess. Just grabbed one and it's loose but fits.

Anyone know off hand what sizes this truck uses? I know there are some big ones in the bed. What size are those and are there any others? Might as well just get a set with all the big ones this truck needs. No biggie if no one knows. But I'll prolly just return this one when I'm done with it and hold out for a set at some point. I read elsewhere there is another standard of torx, torx plus I think where the T55 fits better or something. I'll probably invest in a set of that kind

I've picked up a few at flea markets and pawn shops and such. Usually built onto a 3/8" socket

Okay just for reference you need a T55 AND a t45 or close to get the bolts that mount the waist seat belt out for the driver's seat as it's smooshed through it. I'm gonna try to 'smoosh' the belt out of the buckle I guess if I wanna get this done by tomorrow morning.

If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
Good luck with that since the reason it is folded over and sewed is to keep it from coming off. You could pull the threads with a thread ripper and unfold it. To attach it again a thimble and heavy sewing needle. Total cost for every thing should be under $20. As a temporary fix till you can get the items needed use tape to keep the fabric from unraveling.

For most Ford stuff T45, T50, T55, and T60 are the standard big boys.

Seatbelt pivot bolts (the one up above your shoulder where the seatbelt comes back down), are almost always T45. Seat track bolts are T45, 50, or 55 depending on year and model. Bed bolts are T55 or 60, again depending on year and model.

I have a T55 and a T60 in 1/2 inch drive for use on bed bolts.

Thx for the answers. I got a set from Walmart. Has all but the t60 but as fate would have it unexpectedly my relationship suddenly has just ended with this truck. Or will so within 24hrs. Earlier today half way across the state of FL on my way to eat turkey with some friends the engine blew something up in there. Somewhere between the two banks something busted open letting coolant spray out overheating the engine and soaking it. Friends picked me up and I left it in an abandoned gas station. Unless I suddenly have a change of heart or win the lottery I'm just gonna donate it to the nearest junk yard. Between cost to diagnose a costly repair and my inability to hang around a foreign town away from home for however long to fix it my gut is telling me to give it away and catch a bus home (and find a new job asap as I used my truck for a pt garbage collection job) while I'm ahead. Anyway, thanks again. Take it easy...

That sounds like the intake gasket (lower one maybe?) Had that happen on my old truck. Fairly cheap to diy
You can rent a coolant pressure tester from a parts stores to test it. You should see the coolant spray out the back and hit the firewall
