Tilt Lift Sling
Capable of tilting payloads (up to 2,000 lbs.) a full 45deg in either direction, the Oberg Tilt Lift Sling eliminates the need for endless repositioning of chains for adjusting engine angle during installation and removal. This compact steel unit is designed to provide years of trouble free service. Includes mounting cleats for fastening to any automotive engine.
Armed with only a 1/2" rachet, you can now confront engine swaps single handedly without worrying about pinched fingers.

The Tilt Lift Sling, used by professionals nationwide, is safe, easy to use, and compact. It weighs only 4 lbs., yet is rated to handle loads up to 2,000 lbs. with a built-in 3 to 1 safety factor.
latest Deluxe twisters.
All the bells and whistles:
These twisters are the latest iteration of the old "Tigerwave" twisters. All features are the same except for the substitution of normal serrated jaws for the wave form jaws. All the other great Tigerwave features are still there.
(1)Cushion throat secures the clipped wire ends so they do not fly off into the nether regions of the shop, fuselage, chassis, etc. to get into tires, fuel cells, electrical units and shoe soles and otherwise cause what airplane guys call FOD (Foreign Object Damage). Saves a lot of time looking for the ends and riding herd over neophytes letting them scatter.
((2) Auto spring return of the pull shaft. A great convenience in restricted access situations. (Look, Ma, one hand.)
((3) Reversible twist rotation allows right and left handed twists. Experienced wirers will already know that the second twist really needs to be in the opposite direction to the first for the best functioning (and looking) wire job.
These are the very best wire twisters money can buy. Available in both
the traditional 9" size and the more ergonomic 6" version.

Dzus Specialty Tools
Dzus Divot Maker, Driver and Knife. The Dzus Divot Maker makes those nice little divots in sheet metal for a professional look. The Dzus Driver has a specially shaped blade to fit the curve slot in Dzus buttons much better than ordinary screwdrivers, preventing camming out and burring of the slot. It has a fat handle for better grip and leverage. Much cheaper than the Snap-On version. The Dzus Knife is a two size, right angle version of the Driver, giving more leverage and improved clearance in tight locations. The two radii mate perfectly with the #5 and #6 Dzus studs.
Dzus Divot Maker: DZ7010 ........................$24.95
Dzus Driver: DZ 7001 ...............................$19.80
Dzus Knife: DZ 7000 ................................$9.98
Dzus Spring Adjuster Tool
This is a handy spring adjusting tool to
effectively set S spring depth. The DZ7301 tool eliminates the need for various depths of S springs. It also dramatically
reduces the number of different stud lengths required for any project. By
properly adjusting the spring height, you eliminate troublesome fasteners that
are either too loose or too tight.
| Bolt Gauge
Handy gauge to identify AN Bolt dash numbers. Simply hang the bolt
from it's appropriate slot (which identifies it's diameter) and read the dash
number at the end of the bolt. Saves a lot of mis-ordered bolts. Applicable to
all AN 3 through AN 8 Air Frame bolts, AN 73 through AN 78, AN 42 through AN
47, AN 173 through AN 178 and MS 20073 and MS 20074 series.
Installation ToolsFor replacement of
studs and grommets there are two tools required. The CMT-4P3 pliers depress the
spring, thus lengthening the stud and allowing it to be installed in the
grommet. The CMT-26 tool is helpful in installing the R4G and R4T snap ring
retainers on the grommets.
Pop Rivet Tool
The everlasting Marson HP2 hand pop rivet setting tool. This is still
the best buy in hand rivet tools. I bought mine in 1967, and it's still going
strong, several thousand rivets later. Comes with collets to pull 3/32, 1/8,
5/32, and 3/16 Pop, Cherry N or Q rivets, and even Cherrymax.
Port & Fitting I.D. Kit
Handy kit for determining the port
or fitting size, style, pitch, etc. Includes inside/outside vernier calipers,
combo mm/inch pitch gauge (narrow to fit inside ports), flare profile gauge (37
degree, 45 degree inverted flare, etc.), reference manual covering all modern
hydraulic port and fitting styles, and a magnifying glass for those over 40. A
must for the plumbing neophyte. Saves countless hours trying to describe what
you want when ordering and many dollars returning incorrect parts.
Handy combination millimeter/inch gauge. Made in U.S.A.
|Hose Fitting Mandrel Kit.
A kit of assembly mandrels to install straight nose ends onto Aeroquip 302/303 or Strato-Flex 111 medium pressure hoses. Also usable with Little Gem and Super Gem hose ends and stainless steel braided hose. Set includes mandrels to do hoses from -3 to -12. Individual mandrels are available on request.
"Bonney" Service Wrenches are the erstwhile AN fitting wrench, popular
for years in the aircraft and racing industry. Always hard to find, these
wrenches are a badge of honor among race mechanics. Real Bonney men look down
their noses at those clunky CNC'd aluminum copies now sold by AN plumbing
houses. And for good reason. Service wrenches are slimmer and more
ergonomically shaped than the aluminum copies and, being steel, can be
physically smaller - thus ideally suited for the tight confines of the race
As we run out of the original Bonney wrenches we are substituting the Martin wrenches which are an exact replacement.
Part numbers correspond to Bonney's number stamped on the wrench handle. The last two numbers represent the wrench's size in 32nds, example: Our P/N 000-T-1224 = Bonney 1224 or 24/32 or 3/4"
True Bonneys are limited to stock on hand.

Magnetic Vice Soft
We've jury rigged, made and bought a lot of vice soft jaws over the years. All have left a little or a lot to be desired. Finally we've found some that truly do the job, are easy to use and economical to boot. Magnetic back to grip vice, vertical and horizontal V-grooves to grip hex or round stock. Soft die cast aluminum for no-mar gripping. Just the thing for assembling AN hose ends without marking them up -- yet quickly removable for a rough job. $49.99
|6" Dial Calipers
Cheap Asian calipers for knocking
around the shop. At this price you won't mind so much when your brother-in-law
drops them after his third beer. Actually quite accurate. Everybody should have
a set in his tool box, if for no other reason to be able to order parts right.
All too many parts orders start with, "I need a screw." "What size?" "Ah, a
little bigger than the one I got." "What diameter is that?" "Ah, lemme see. Ah,
yah... it's one little mark less than a quarter inch." "Do you mean 3/16ths or
7/32nds?" "I donno - will it fit my hole I've drilled out?"
For those who don't want to figure
out how to read the dials we offer this direct reading digital caliper.
Converts from inch to millimeter at the push of a button. Instantly zeros.
Comes with a spare battery. Good value.
Nose & Side
"Borroughs" Timing Belt Tension Gauge
Timing belt tension is important. Too tight -- you risk premature belt and pulley wear and possible belt breakage. Too loose can and does result in skipped teeth, the ultimate outcome being bent valves or even a destroyed engine. There are various rules of thumb regarding guessing at proper tension. Trust none of them. Get the right tool for the job and save yourself thousands later. Recommended factory tool on Jensen Healey, 907, Turbos (either L-section or HTD tooth forms) and BDA engines. Usable on any other belt drive cam engine. $434.50
Left Hand Taps
...are needed whenever you are making (or repairing) an adjustable suspension link. We recommend you paint code them so as not to confuse them with their RH brothers, a quaint little tendency that has ruined more than a few links -- and sent a machinist or two out my door!
BSP (British Standard Pipe) Taps
The ubiquitous "weird English thread." These taps are a must around any pre-80s oil or fuel system.

Snap Ring Pliers
You will eventually tire, as we did, of trying to make those stupid, universal, changeable-tip snap ring pliers work. Either too big, too small, too wide, or too narrow, and always too flexible. To end this frustration, we offer the following dedicated snap ring pliers:
000-T-1040Heavy duty, genuine Milbar internal snap ring pliers ideal for those large (and stout) hub carrier and transmission bearing retaining clips, 60mm or bigger. Tight 90° tips to maneuver behind axle flanges, 0.090" diameter tips fit the big eyelets without bending and breaking. Plenty of mechanical advantage for removing those stuck rings from mag and aluminum housings. .........$39.93
000-T-1038Smaller external version of above to remove shaft clips holding same bearing on its shaft. .......$22.41
000-T-1030Precision, compact internal plier with tiny (0.030") 45° tips for removing small internal clips (piston pin clips, suspension spherical bearing retainers, etc.) Have sufficient travel unlike universals, which always seem to bottom before disengaging the groove. Return spring and ergonomic handles for precise control. ............$24.17
000-T-1050Milbar lock ring pliers. For removing those earless external snap rings so common in gear boxes. Checkered jaws for extra grip to prevent ring from slipping off the exact moment it clears the shaft and flying into the nether region -- never to be found until the archeological digs of the 24th century. ...........................$24.10
000-T-1060Deluxe electrical stripping and crimping plier. Strips AWG and metric sizes, crimps English bullet connectors and plug wire terminals. .............$24.05
