Default What size is this bolt???

Can anyone tell me the size of the head of the bolt(s) for the oil return line attached to the bottom of the Turbo. I "think" it is 8mm, but due to the space, I can't see a damn thing, but I can feel the head of the bolt(s). I think there is, with just a bit of luck, to get at them with a box end wrench, but certainly no socket.
I dropped a note to Chris at Turbos Unleashed with the same question, but he may not get back on time, as I need to know no later than Monday Mar.7th.
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I can't find the darned size of that anywhere. From the looks, I'd say 10mm, but then I've not pulled that line so not sure.

From the schematics, I don't think you have the right bolts. I know they are not 10mm, as I managed to get a 10mm down there and you could feel it was too big, at least that is how it felt to me.
On top of the turbo is the oil inlet line (first drawing right side #2), but underneath the at the bottom of the turbo is the return line, and bolted to the turbo to drain the oil back to the crankcase.
Taking a turbo off is NO easy task due to work space as I am sure you know.
Thanks for your drawings and comments. Everything helps.

Yep, it's one of the two pieces I've left untouched to date. So far I'm happy that it hasn't failed as everyone I've spoken to who have worked on the PT turbo has said the same thing...P I T A !!!!
