Sold to Paul thanks
Which ever Paul bought these...well done! You will love them.
Spencer and Scott C,
In the spirit of teaching, can you share your wisdom as to how Paul will use this tool. I am curious.
looks like a simple tool to build ...does anyone have a drawing for these ? ...always an optimist ...Merry Christmas...Gene French
Gene, I may have drawings that I did years ago. I'll need to look.
They actually are simple tools...hardened very nicely and durable for their purpose.
If you're crazy enough to scrape your own bearings (and I am when the babbit is good and the crank is at or close to original specs)., these things can save you a ton of time rather than using the original bolts for each fit-up.
Set the cap on the crank
Drop the bolts through the cap/block
stick the "fork" in the slots of the bolts
tweak the "nuts" on the end of the bolt to draw up the "forks"
now it's all snug and ready to check bluing/contact area on cap
quick loosen the nut
pull out the fork
withdraw the bolt
caps come off
Imagine assembling the center main with normal bolts, fishing the nuts into place, drawing them up snug
quick bolts cut assembly/disassembly time to less than 10% over factory bolts
You don't use them for full torque as they will deform at the cut-out on the bolt, but they work very well as designed for snug-to-almost-tight
I finally bought a set last month and have put them to use and they are a wonder
Ah. Ok. Thank you.
