    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

    ADC Otoscope

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

    ProVision

    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.
