    Getting Tools

    Hey everyone! Getting asked by my girlfriend what I really want (for my ski, that is.) I'm becoming better at understanding how to work on these engines but need tools besides the ones that Jerry sells. Any suggestions on the tools I need and the size of the snap-on box I should ask for?

    I am not sure what the ????? means but just in case.....

    Snap-on (argueably the best tools) sell off a truck. The driver has a route or territory much like a coca-cola route. He goes from garage to garage etc with a supply of tools on his truck and any special orders that may have been placed.

    Being around a snap on truck is like being a kid at toy r us. Of course you need a big wallet.

    I love the people who tell me to get craftsman because they are cheaper and have a lifetime guarentee like snap on and other high end tools. None of that matters when you bust a knuckle because your rachet broke!

    The question is.....

    Really, what size box should I ask for and how much should a loaded box that said size cost? I just don't know.

    Lets see, ther eare not many wrenches etc needed for normal maintenance items

    get a set of:

    metric alen wrenches
    10,13,17mm socket set with extensions
    10mm box wrench, get two of those
    Prop spline tool
    Get yourself a drill adaptor for the sockets, makes getting the pump bolts out really fast and easy

    Get yourself a socket alen wrench for the seat support. Not sure what size that was, but makes getting that thing off with a drill much faster

    Get yourself a large bottle of blue loctite

    For changing oil you will need a torx socket, not sure of the size (E-10?)

    Oh, and you will need a decnet torque wrench for getting the pump on to spec.

    That should handle 99% of the ordinary tasks you will ever do on your ski.....

    Anyone chime in on anything that I missed

    You plan on keeping just tools or spare parts in it?

    I keep sled, bike and soon RXP spare parts in my 42" Cornwell. I like the box with the full length and deep drawer on top. A few larger drawers. Holds oil, filters, ect, ect.


    Just tools. I paid 1300 and spent 100 in fuel to pick up this Snap On. Two bottom drawers hold good sized parts. I think it 29 wide. Lots of shallow drawers.


    Lots of good used boxes on Ebay. Find them near by then bid the extra that you will be saving by picking it up. Carefull of scams. Always ask if pick up is available.
