    Yes there are better ways to do a flywheel pilot bushing. It was just a larger example of the situation in which you could improvise with a punch. Original intent was lost in trying to keep my wording brief

    #6. Tire valve repair tool
    #7. Seal puller
    #5 why that's a dial a cam, lol
    #3. Early pocket multi-tool
    #8. Screw starter or to hold brushes in place on motors during assembly (wild guess)

    Piston Slapper, I think #6 is a grease fitting tool. The tapered end is to get a broken fitting out. The thread chaser repairs female threads and the open slot aids when you have to remove or install a right angle grease fitting. Am I close?

    I didn't believe it myself when I found out how old this RAT chette is..
    Its hard to believe it was patented over 150 years ago....didn't see one at Sears until the late 70s....1970s...
    Ratchet wrenches are one of my favorites..the GearWrenches hold up and Napa honors the warranty..
    I will hold off on giving you the exact date...you'd probably think I was mistaken....or just plain lying...
    Google the patent #....read it for yourself...

    #7 is a drift for removing taper shank drill bits etc.
    #8 is a valve keeper tool.
    #5 GM point gap adjuster tool, ( for the old skool "windows" )
    #2 mayhaps a flare nut ratcheting wrench.
