A new toy...

Post #1 by mikenixon » Mon Jul 03, 2017 7:29 pm

Have been on the lookout for one of these for some time and finally spotted it on eBay. Made by Stahlwille, the premium German wrench maker. Though most carburetors don't require this anal an approach, the GL1000 carbs, with their zinc based castings and resulting tendancy to pull float bowl screw threads, virtually demand it. I have already used it. Perfect! :)

A good quality tool is an always welcome addition to the toolbox.

I hope my wife doesn't see this..everything I buy for my toys is a very necessary tool. ;)
I even managed to sneak a 1/2" drive impact gun in on the kitchen reno shopping list..for...installing the draw pulls. :mrgreen:
