Hello All,

I thought that I would take a turn presenting a tool which a few of you may not have seen before.







Have fun!

Fanciest ring compressor I've ever seen. Can you bring it to the meeting next month?

Sorry Dave, it is not a ring compressor.

It holds the piston when tightening the con rod bolt.

Sorry Steve, but that is not what it is for either.

Well Art, I've learned something. I did not know that it would hold the piston; I have only used it to hold the caps: main bearing and con rod.

An apology to Steve, you get partial credit.

Looks like it's for spreading a small differential housing to get the ring gear out. OR, a real fancy elastrator to place the rubber band on the young bulls to make them steers!
