Should be 19 mm. That's the common metric size on many cars, my '87
5000TQ and MB 560 SEL included. But I'm not positive about your 1990 80Q.

Sears Craftsman is good. But I believe that their torque wrenches do not
have a lifetime warranty. I think it is limited to a few months. Most of
their other hand tools have a lifetime warranty though.
