    I bought it off an independent tool guy/truck back in 1972 when I was wrenchin' on Mazda rotaries. It's a heavy little sucker! I do believe its time to put in the vane/rebuild kit, though. It seems to have lost some oomph!

    That attachment is the other feature that made the " Imp" unique!
    Which is why I bought it. It came in real handy for changing the plugs on Mazda rotary engines, back in the day.
    You could index the attachment completely around the head of the gun.
    Cool, huh?

    Fish, they make one thing similar today. This has saved me many times in tight spaces.

    I thought sure restrorob would get this one..........or somebody!
    How many times have you struggled to get all the gaskets, shields, spacers, carb, carb linkage& springs, and air filter box assembled on a pi$$ a$$ Honda engine?????
    Well make ya a pair of these bolts to assemble everything! Slide everything in place then pull one out at a time and install yer bolt.

    These are honda carb bolts w/o the head, but I made an even better (longer) set from a Kaw. carb mounting bolt.

    I think RestroRob is on his way to the NorthPole to give Santa his annual pep talk...

    Good idea on the Honda carb alignment pins...though you probably won't end up with as many free breather gaskets...
