Ya got yer 4 way carb jet tool (useless, by the way), ya got a carb offset screwdriver,

Not too bad...almost aced it again Fish....
The sumtim you never used. Is a pair of Briggs condenser pliers..used to compress the spring so you can insert the wire.
The 4way jet removal screwdriver is junk...bends before it'll ever remove a jet.
The funky pocket. Screwdriver is actually a Walbro left handed thread tamperproof cap remover..
The spanner driver fits poulan and echo clutches...impact pops them off with ease.

Id like to see your throttle wire z bender...the one picture puts an ok bend...but I usually have to tweak the bend with pliers to get a good fit...

Back in to 90's Kawasaki got a bad batch of undersize valve seats on the FB engines..
Some lasted longer than others...but they all fell out...lots of warranties..
The other recurring problem they brought upon themselves was when the engineers decided to make the synchro rods out of aluminum instead of cast iron with a bushing.
The rods didn't hold up too well...

Make sure to get the c ring installer. It works well..
The remover is a bit funky..sometimes it works ..it doesn't seem to fit well atop the Briggs aluminum cap.
When it doesn't work...I dig one end of the ring out with a screwdriver and bend it off with my side cutters.

Nice z bend pliers....I guess SnapOn delivers out in the woods too...

I got the installer years ago with the remover, Maybe a little Restro re-engineering can make it fit the cap better.....

Yep..... We have a couple trucks drive out from the BIG city....

I thought that's what it was, only it looks bent and maybe flattened. I got a couple of em', one Stihl, one Echo. I never use em, I always use a small sheet metal screw and small vice grips. I got one of them there clutch thingys too, only the one I have is more of a flat disc with the pins and hex welded in, Echo made it.
I should have taken a pic of my z bender, nobody would have got it! Its a piece of flat steel ( actually a handle off a 1/4 turn ball valve, tough steel) with a slot cut in the end. Simple ,huh!
I make the first bend with my heavy duty linemans pliers. Then I lay it in the slot and bend it over. The thickness of the steel makes the correct depth of bend. It's a pain to use, but I got tired of havin to tweek the bends also.
I'll try and get a pic tomorrow.
Back in the day, I always said I was gonna get a pair of the condenser pliers, never did.
