Default Where to buy 16mm open end stubby wrench retail?

Need a stubby 16mm open end wrench to remove fuel lines from 4.3L engine. Sears sells kits of stubby that contain everything except 16mm. Harbour Freight was a no go also? I am trying to avoid mail order. Any suggestions?

Do you have a Menards? I have found them to have a real good selection of tools.

Thanks for the suggestions. Dan was spot on with Menard'*, and they wee on sale,

I think Sears is getting extra tricky with its sales of tool sets. This is the second time in recent memory the Craftsman set left out a wrench in sequence that was needed to service a GM product, so you would have to make an additional purchase other than the set.

I have a Menards right down the road. I buy lots of tools there. They sell Snap on, and those are good tools. I don't even buy set anymore, just pick up what I need. Seems I have several wrenches that are now years old, and have never been used. Others, are used all the time.

That is an awesome comment and one I will hold on to. Not only are the unused tools extra cost, they take work to manage/store and organize them.

Glad you got it fixed. My friend went around that issue by putting a 90* bend in the handle of a smaller crescent wrench.

Try a 5/8" stubby wrench.
