What size for the rest of the screws? 3mm, 2.5mm, 2mm and 1.5? Will that cover all of them?

Here are the size that you need:

1.5mm
2.0mm
2.5mm

on regular hex tip, Integy has the best quality, they are just a bit oversized so it fits very very tight on the hex screws.

you might also want to get a ball head 2.5mm, and Hudy one is the best, and hudy hook to remove exhaust springs and those castor clips, it works really good.

and if you are planning to use power tools, then get a set of Ofna power tools adaptor, it comes with 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0mm tip.

Are you saying that it will also not work on the newer 0.8 gearing of the MTX-3? I tried the tool on the Centax 3 and it worked fine.
What I am saying is this......A serpent 710 has a "Centax III" clutch......The Mugen tool will NOT hold the clutch bell for the serpent....it is smaller than the clutch bell of the Centax II that we have on our MTX-3's. (The gear-turning handle works with all gears, it's the clutch-bell holding handle that works only with the Centax II clutch bells.)

I bought mine at Pegasus, check with Elite, Ian might have it!

By the way, I think Mugen makes it too.

Here is Ofna one


I remember I have seen something similar with Mugen headboard, so I assume Mugen makes one.

i think the ball end is touching or is very close to the bottom of the cup. try to move the two sway bars apart a little.
