distributor wrenches

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Sun Jul 05, 2015 1:27 pm

I posted this in the cub forum, but thought putting a copy here might be appropriate

I have seen lots of distributors with the rear clamping bolt either loose or missing due to the bolts being hard to get too, but Napa sells "Half Moon" wrenches in various sizes. The online price shows $15 to $19 each, but our local NAPA has tools on sale every other month. I think I gave $7 for the 1/2-7/16 one and $9 for the 9/16-5/8 one. Many places sell them as starter/manifold wrenches. These are Carlyle brand, but were sold by NAPA

I, too, have a set of half moon wrenches for the distributor work. However, these puppies work extremely well, as well. Image

I've known plenty of folks that just take an oddball wrench or a cheap wrench and either heat it up and bend it to fit or cut the head off entirely and weld it to fit

Yup, got some of that variety also.
