Amazing response to this thread...over 6000 hits in 1 week...
You don't have to be a tech to stump one...if you found an easier way or made your own tool...
Feel free to post it...who knows...you may actually help someone work around a tough repair..
Its all work..you gotta make it as easy on yourself as you can....
Thanx again....

Old enough to know what a condenser tester is for,
what a set of points and a matchbook cover have in common.

When I saw that pic, I had to go into my screw driver draw to
see if I still had my screw holding screw drivers. Any more,
I take the magnet I got out of a old starter and just run it down
a few times on which ever screw driver I need at that moment.

I love those antique B&S tools, you could sell them on Ebay and
get a few bucks

For those who don't know, the box on the left is a Neway
valve seat cutter set. The box on the right is a Neway Gizmatic
refacer for cutting the profile (is that the right word ?) on a valve.

These are not cheap tools, but well worth the cost. And don't forget the valve lapping compound and the lapping stick.

And they all can be found here

Breez...The screwholding screwdrivers were almost a necessity working on the old Kohler K series engines.
Getting the screws back in the points and condenser...as well as the metal cover without them was a challenge..the K582 23hp was really fun..
After having a local machine shop continually butcher the heads we sent to them...which cost me a ton of extra labor , parts,...... and excitable customers that looked at me like I was stupid....I purchased the Neway valve tools. The best money I ever spent...nothing worse than paying for the work and then having to do it yourself...
BTW...the big screwdriver is from a Ford model A toolkit...( I think..RestroRob will know for sure )
The flat metal thing with the U shaped end is a homemade valvespring tool for getting under the springs on L head engines.

I never knew they updated my clip remover to the style you have, I'm always standing on egg shells every time I use mine in fear of snapping the pins again .....which I keep on hand.....

I wish I could find the old tool. The new one is a POS.

What, no dial indicator? Feeler guages of every shape and size? At least no newfangled digital stuff. You actually have to know how to read those.

Separates the wannabe's from those that actually are......pretty quickly...

You really should get one of those sanding blocks...
Takes 5 to 10 minutes a head...
OldSchool is COOL,,.
