Alt Source for Flywheel Bolt Socket

I am trying to track down an alternative source for the 12-pt / 12-mm flywheel socket. I know I can order it through Pelican however it looks to have a 5-day lead time for shipping and I am trying to make sure I can have the tool in hand by next Friday so I can remove the flywheel and crack the case next Saturday.

Checked around on line without much success. May not be using the right search words though. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks.

Nevermind... it looks like its a snap-on part. I'll have to call snap-on tomorrow and see how fast I can get one shipped out.

Thanks.

Google "triple square" or XZN. They are not uncommon.

Looks like the OP's going Snap-on. But for the record I ended up buying one from the 'Metalnerd'. It's especially nice because it's short and could be used with the engine on a conventional stand. (There was too little clearance in there for a long socket as seems to be most common.)

Thanks guys... I did end up going with a snapon unit. Bought the shorter of the two they offer. I actually tried Harbor Freight, Pep Boys and one other strip mall auto parts place and none of them had the triple square item. I actually only just found the regional section today (a mod must have moved my original post for me). Thanks for the offers and local insight!
