Re: 79 350 overhaul

I hope my tool works for the RH side. The washer on the end is not needed.

It does. I had a stop off on my way home to try it out. 40-50 RPM with a speeder is all it takes. Grinding a groove around the EMT might get the oil to flow a little faster. That shiny stuff on the second pic is oil.

Get the Jeg's tool if it is easy for you. With freight, duty and exchange it wasn't worth it for me though and now I don't have to worry about storing it.

Re: 79 350 overhaul

I have a place in my tool cabinet where I store all my engine tools. I even made the tool cabinet, so I didn't have to worry about storage....

Re: 79 350 overhaul

I've been collecting tools and stuff for so many years that I have to think more about de-cluttering rather accumulating. Its an age thing.

Yeah, for whatever reason its easier to spend money on tools now that I'm retired. But at my age, I may not get much use out of some of them!

Most of the wall space in my 20x20 garage is full of tool cabinets, shelving units, and wall cabinets. And, oh yeah, refrigerator, bicycles, and garden tools. Amazing I still have a 11 X20 space for a vehicle!
