    Guys if there are any tools you have that you think are really good, please do a quick review of them and post them up.

    It all helps others decide what to buy when they are looking around for the same type of thing.

    Homemade Valve Adjustment Tool


    It basically consists of:

    - 10mm Deep Socket (couple of quid from B&Q)
    - A small piece of steel rebar as the handle (you can use any piece of decent strength steel, even a socket extension bar or something)
    - Some black tape (rebar is a little sharp but not necessary if using smooth metal as the handle)
    - Weld

    Job done :Smile:

    Has anyone tried a spark plug socket and ring spanner or shifting spanner.

    Its something I thought about about trying, but I already have the combined tool.

    I say spark plug socket because some of them have an external hex on them

    spark socket.

    You could but you would have to tilt it considerably for clearance reasons as you'll notice how sharp an angle my attached rod is. You may not be able to get enough force for nipping it up without the spanner slipping etc. Worth a try though. :Smile:

    That's the second good idea today Andy. :Drinks:

    Let us know if/how well it works :Smile:

    I've got a locking shifting spanner, which is potentially a great tool and for locking onto to something like that, but its cheaply made. :Messed:

    You know when you use a shifting spanner there is usually a little but annoying amount of slop, well this snugs up real tight once the handle is closed, the jaws are smooth (and a bit too soft IMO) and unlike vice grips don't bite into the metal. Nevertheless its well reviewed on Amazon.

    Ahh I see you had the Click Adjuster, not enough room on the 6th Generation either, particularly on intake - I used the 10mm Powerbuilt 'Jam Nut' tool on your guide :Thumbup:

    Its a great tool....but make it better and charge more please lol. I think every shifting spanner should have this locking capability as it transforms what is a sloppy fit, second best to an actual spanner to a spanner that is a better/tighter fit on any nut/bolt, than you could ever dig out your toolkit. It effectively swallows up any tolerances when you close the handle.

    Don't get me wrong, its not a vice grip replacement but it won't scratch or chomp (within reason) into what its holding

    Its about a 25mm jaw, it just slips over my (bbq) Propane bottle nut (the brass reverse thread type).

    With my ever increasing Honda lawn , Power and engine collection I have purchased this filter funnel to protect fuel contaminations getting into the carbs. A few of these Honda items do not have fuel filters and they reply on gravity to feed fuel adding a filter will starve the engine causing it to stall or hunt.

    So this makes life a bit easier. Some great reviews on the product.

    I have found lately there is a lot of foreign debris within the fuel where I buy my BPUUL it ever so small it hardly noticeable but when you emptying your Jerry can to the bottom it then when these pesky bits get in.

    All the more reason for changing the car fuel filters as prescribed!
