    Need help finding the correct screw driver

    My L1011 throttle quadrant is riddled with screws that use some kind of 3 prong screwdriver. I do not know if this is unique to Lockheed or widely used in the industry.
    Theres many different sizes of bolts that use this pattern so I will need a screwdriver set. Heres a picture of it, if anyone can tell me the name of this pattern or where to buy the screwdrivers, would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    That is a torque or torx tip. Most likely unique to Lockheed. Try a web search, harbor freight, etc. We had those on the first blocks of F-16's and the were phased out over the years. Hope that helps some.

    I have a few of those bits in a set. You can likely find those at MSC or McMaster-Carr
