Another specialist tool.

    Recommended Posts

    Been working with the boy today on his Landy 90. After a good tip from ditchman how to get the crankshaft damper nut off, next came the damper itself. Now I am no time served engineer or fabricator, but isnt life so much easier when, if you need something you have the bits and bobs in your workshop to codge something together. Some poor unfortunates would have to order it up and maybe wait a week for it to be delivered. That damper would have been a right pain to get off without this piece of plate and some threaded bar. Or should I say this specialist LR puller.:lol:

    Necessity is the mother of all invention. Great when you have the knowledge to make what you need out what's to hand.

    Well you make all sorts of things ditchman and you have said you help the plump one out from time to time.

    Is there a nut inside the Gedore socket?

    The 10mm plate is 12mm threaded, the socket is just being used as spacer Gordon.

    I assumed there was a nut inside the Gedore socket or the plate was threaded. I just couldn't work out why the nut / spacer was needed. That said - a very decent bit of work.

    you have 2 seals a dust seal on the case plate.......then the crank seal.............crank gear off  (slides off the key easy)....get a 2.5mm welding rod   ...sharpen it to a point and put a small tight curve in it and shove it thro the seal and pull...............degrease the crank and housing.....little bit of silicon mastic (high temp)...push / tap new seal in position

     

    job done ........

    The spacer was there because some silly old duffer cut the threaded bar too long.:lol:
