Piston Ring compressor pliers. I believe they are from KD tools.
Close enough Wayne...
Heres a few more from the bottom drawer...
Hope you enjoy the ribs....
I know what you're thinking...Why 2 Spring Hones with 4 inch stones...???
I use them for deglazing cylinder bores..
I get the 30 degree crosshatches the way I want them with a 120 grit hone...
Then...I switch to a 400 grit hone to finish the crosshatching....
The reason is I just want to seat the rings...not take a couple hundred hours off their useful expectancy by leaving the bores with an agressive 120 grit finish...
I found a few things in my tool cabinet that I have not used for years.
Can you guess what tools are on the top, center and bottom photos?
Top is carb screw adjuster...SnapOn. perhaps..
Middle is a set of funky carb screw adjusters...SnapOn perhaps.
Bottom...mini snowshovel ???
Piston Slapper, correct on #1 and it is a Snap On carb adjuster for those of us who remember adjustable carbs. That tool is circa 1974
Incorrect on #2
Incorrect on #3
I can tell ya this, the bottom trim tool has nothin to do with small engines!
I'm thinkin the middle set of specialty screw drivers don't either!
Nor did the long reach carb adj. screwdriver with the non slip tips!
Ok Fish, you got me.
The center picture is a set of Snap On tire valve tools. There is a threader for the outside thread on the valve stem where the cap goes. The other is a threader for the internal threads on a valve stem. The other two tools are a valve stem removal tool and a reamer. Although it is not for an engine, it is for the tires that are on landscaping equipment. There have been tools here like the tool that helps putting links on chains that has little to do with small engines. The panel puller is used to pull or straighten sheet metal where you have little access. Yes, it is mostly for autos but I have used it on small tractors.
Naw, man you got me on those! I got a lot of snapon tools but not them!
I use a small 4-way cross type. Actually I don't use it much at all anymore, just a small plastic handled core remover.
Tire tools are relevant.
Hey there's a lot of roller chain on landscape equipt., not much on mowers though!
So what are the rest of the tools???????
