    I posted up a home made tool to help out a fellow CK5'er and was wondering who else has made their own tools, if you have any pics and descriptions.

    I made this fan remover tool when I wasn't able to hold the water pump pulley still, it kept slipping on the serpentine belt.

    I bought a piece of flat steel stock, drilled out holes for the pulley bolts, and knotched out around the main fan bolt. Lossened two pulley bolts, bolted the wrenched to the pulley and loosened the main nut.

    I made a carrier bearing puller when I regeared my D70, copied the idea with permission from a PBB member, MOBY DICK. Worked slicker-n-snot! It'll work on D60 too.

    For those stubborn fan clutches with the big nuts i just use an air hammer and a punch bit right on the corner of the nut works, first time everytime
