    I found a cheap 3/8" click type @ Autosource, but now I wish I had gotten a better one.

    Sears Craftsman has what you want. They're expensive though. All the autoparts stores have some, just not a lot to choose from.

    I was looking into the craftsman but its 100$can each lol. Maybe its worth it doh, the ones on ebay are pretty cheap but I am not sure about the quality.

    I bought one off of EBAY for around $30. It seems to work just fine for me.

    i use MATCO, same price pretty much as Snapon. the quality is a lot higher when compared to craftsman. i had a harbor freight one that i mistakenly trusted when i built a 289, needless to say the motor didnt last long.
