I have one of those too. Baum tools used to make it. One of my favorite tools.

One of my favorite threads thought I'd resurrect to see if there's any new ideas out there.

Hub Cover Puller

Tired of spending ten minutes to pull the front hub covers? Braze on a couple of nuts. Attach threaded rod with drilled heavy weight (I used an old doorknob.) Add second nut at other end. Screw it on and toss the weight about 10 times away from the hub. Hub cover is off. Reverse to replace. KEEP YOUR FINGERS OUT OF THE WAY. This thing will bite you badly.

Bolt style cam sprocket holding tool. From a 2" nipple and common nails from the bin. Fits and works perfectly.


More low tech but effective, Red scotch brite pads stapled on to a regular 3 arm hone. Using liquid soap as a lube and some patience, it was great for deglaze of Nikacil cylinders.

Pickup.

Certainly not as esoteric s the previous posts,
but has helped out on numerous occasions.

Thanks,

Gerry

Those 2 minute turn turn'n bank indicators are useless, every time I did a 2 minute turn I ended up back on the same heading I started with.

As a mechanical engineer, this is like looking at dirty porn. So awesome, yet so wrong.

Love This

Gotta love this!!! I grew up working on everything and I love these tools people created. I used a lot of old school bearing/drum pullers, etc.. doing my suspension bushings(front & rear)without a torch. My buddy was out of MAPP gas so we made things work. Way Cool!!! Used the brain!!!

Cylinder hold down nuts. Finger nuts are exchangeable for the std M10 1.5 or Supertec M10 1.0.

I would love to have the Dave Kirk valve lash tool, but they seem to be in short supply. I made my own from a story on Rennlist that actually works extremely well.

Same theory as the other pro one, but a little simpler. that is a flat screwdriver tip at the lower left end of the tool. The "V" is 36 degrees. You tighten the adjustment screw and then back it off 36 degrees and lock it in place. the thread pitch is 1mm , so 10th of a revolution or 36 degrees is .1mm.
