Just was posting this in Thrasher's Odometer Post:

It was a spring tool that had a hook on the tapered end that I was able to break pretty quick on another project. The business end had a 2 pronged fork shape.
I ground the prongs off and tapered the flats a bit.

I started by just catching the edge of the "wedge" under the crimp until it was able to slide it in deeper. If I were a tech writer it might sound better but...... Than I kind of tilted the tool and moved it sideways around the perimeter. After about 3/4 of the way around I did a second pass. When the lens band was loose I used the tool to pop it off.

I found going about a 1/32 at a time 2x around did the least damage. As you go around it it goes quick you get a rhythm going - pry sideways push into the crimp and repeat.

After I did the repair I popped the rim back on and used a chop stick to bend the crimp back over by using pressure and rotating the speedo.

Terry



Hope it helps.

Nothing groundbreaking, but I've made my own versions of gearbox tools. Main shaft socket (no one ever said the shaft couldn't be square!), old clutch center for locking main shaft to bellhousing (still need to weld on some arms) and a 5th-R slider from a 901 box for holding the main shaft in a vice. In the middle is a jig that bolts up to a gearbox flange for testing LSD breakaway torque, which doubles as an arm for testing backlash with a micrometer.

The question is how do we merge these two threads?

More utility than tool... But converted jack stands to sill stands. Use these literally every day and couldn't live without them. Wish id built in front sill stand points like a rally car. The small diameter "C" is fits on aluminum cross member up front.

Torsion bar saddle for hoist

Made these for the two post lift.

They slide onto the lift pads and the cars torsion bars nest into them.

Sure saves on the rear body seams that always got folded over

Engine tray to drop 930 engine still with air injection


Modified 30M wrench to take off front turbo tie rods
Modified ring is to hold the top nut on 930 rear suspension arm so you can loosen on the other side (next picture shows where it goes). The 930 transmission gives you no room to hold that fast even with a box wrench
And the syringe with hard plastic straw crazy glued is to regrease Cayenne Turbo Cardan Shaft

OK, from L-R;
G/box long socket, gudgeon puller (the nut just clears the gudgeon bore), chain tensioner, cam bolt holder, spring plate adjuster, 2 clutch alignments, shock center spindle holder (slice cut away and inserted/welded slightly deeper to make lug), leakdown plug - from a chopped up spark plug, g/box drain plug (square nut welded on base of bolt head), the bent flat is for getting at the rear dizzy clip (ignore the holes). The last one is for depressing/removing valve springs with the head in place - various interchangeable studs and positions for different heads/geometries.

This is the extractor I made to take off the injectors from K-Jetronic:

https://get.google.com/albumarchive/106799704896439228817/album/AF1QipOyu_dfGEAlFMuaRFxLR3YeUClly-suFD-vppzG

Then a key to remove the spark plugs obtained welding a socket wrench with an old FIAT equipment







When the spark plug is slack I use this rubber pipe I found at Louis shop to remove it



Slightly modifying a standard Usag key I obtained this fan remover



To use the hydraulic jack saving the oil lines I made this



If the soil is soft I use a steel plate under the tripod



If I need lifting the car higher I stabilize the car with the tripod, the use bricks under the jack, then fix the tripod in a higher position since I can go under easily.

930 brake expanding tool (I am liking the one posted a couple of pages back).
Spark plug tool. The plug socket has a magnetic insert.

Made a separate post about this simple way to remove injector sleves. Think it belongs here too
Lengthy description here: A way to remove injector sleves.




I also adapted this to change spark plugs. Haven´t got the original socket, and I dint have time to wait for shipment. Just had to grind down the center section a bit to fit cyl 1 & 6. Worked perfectly.

Electricians plastic fuse puller works better than oily fingers for holding rocker shafts when removing/installing. Far easier to hold in line with the bore to get it started in.

Yet another valve lash tool

This valve lash tool is made out of 1/4" aluminum. It helps when you have a nephew with access to a CNC mill, but it could be sawn on a bandsaw and filed. If anyone wants to try 3D printing this part, I have the STL file which should be plug and play. Send me a PM.
