Re: Absolutely Worthless Tools

Do not spend $22 getting the flywheel lock that is supposedly made for the Porsche engine yoke. It is made in Romania and I have no idea what flywheel they used for a model for the lock because it fits no Porsche flywheel that I know of. Save your money and make your own out of steel strap for less than a dollar.
I have two flywheel locks. The Rumanian one for the Porsche engine yoke works great. I have another "universal" flywheel lock that looks like a dog bone. That never worked but it taught me the meaning of "universal" when applied to tools.
universal adj: 1. fits nothing well 2. doesn't work

'80 911 Nogaro blue Phoenix!
