Usefull tools
« on: 22.05. 2014 12:41 »
Just ordered one each of these tools which I thought might be of interest to some of you. A tappet adjusting tool

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BSA-TRIUMPH-NORTON-AJS-TAPPET-ADJUSTMENT-TOOL-FITS-MANY-M/281

And a primary chain case cap removing wrench.

Neither of course are "essential must have items", but both will make the tasks that they are designed to do that little bit easier.

Don't know why I got to my 16th year of puttering with my BSAs before buying one of these cheap ($55) arbor presses. So far, two bushings easily pressed out. Not to say my bench vise hadn't successfully done the job in the past, but nice to have gravity on my side. (Edit, Clarification: "gravity" for setting up sockets as drifts.)
