Torque wrench adapter
This is pretty nice (52 bucks) but I think I'd prefer to buy a set of crows feet. If you're squeazed for room or have tons of sizes/metric/american it would be feasible to spend the bucks.
Motion Pro/torques up to 90 pounds 3/8 drive

No pic, but here goes. Some of you may remember this.
To remove a glued on ride plate:
Cut a wedge or 2 out of a 2x4. Hammer it between the hull and plate from the rear. POP

Great for checking/reading plug burn way down low where we should be and reading those pesky little jet numbers.

Works fairly well for reading piston wash. Doesn't entirely replace the need for a WatCon piston wash lite, but it sure does help.

Coming from a certified tire repair man, You really should not use plugs. Over time the plug will let water into the rubber, and if the puncture is near a steel belt, it will cause the steel belt in the tire to rust. Over time this will cause the tire to suddenly explode (very unsafe). Also with patching or plugging a tire you need to stay within the repairable area of the tire. In the tread area only and not in the outmost tread block (riased tread). Because if you do a plug will work its way out or start leaking, a patch will come loose.

I am with you Rod
20 years working in automotive shops for me.
Plugs are temporary fixes. I am stating that company has the best I have used, and I dont see many problems with them. They will certainly get you out of a jam. They have a really nice kit you can buy and carry with you.

Thats why I have a spare. I have plugged a tire or two but I would never put a plug in my own tire. Also as a side note DO NOT use fix-a-flat. We find that using it the patch vulcunazing(sp?) rubber dose not stick to the tires well, resulting in the patch leaking after a short pierod of time.
