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 slope is not slippery; in fact it is entirely frictionless.

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
