914World.com _ 914World Garage _ Torsion Tools

Posted by: McMark May 24 2018, 03:49 PM

Well that took a lot longer than I expected... but the High Strength Torsion Tools are finally complete. I tested them on a car in the shop and there's NO WAY these are going to bend, and the 'comfort handle' makes it super comfortable to use.

They're $35 each + $5 shipping in the ConUS.

You can PayPal http://paypal.me/OriginalCustoms/40. Make SURE there is a valid shipping address on your payment, please... smiley_notworthy.gif

Checks can go to the shop, the address is http://www.originalcustoms.com/contact.php.

I pull on and off the front springs with a pair of leather work gloves. Keep it simple.

Rear trunk

I have a cheap $10 hand winch fixed to the back of my workshop to pull non running cars indoors. That can also work to stretch the spring over the hook on the front trunk but you have to be careful since now you are putting more pieces under tension so wear safety glasses. If you prop the hood all the way open, doing it by hand isn't that hard.

I just ordered 1,..Thanks...Frank

Posted by: pete000 Jul 16 2018, 06:27 PM

Got mine, going to have it cad plated too...Thanks !

Posted by: McMark Jul 17 2018, 05:38 AM

I don't think it'l be an issue with this little tool, but just FYI when I talked with my plater about what the real story was with 'Hydrogen Embrittlement' my main take-away was that it's not a big deal, except on hardened metals. This tool is hardened.

I don't think our trunk torsion spring is even close to stressing the metal, so plating is seriously unlikely to cause a problem. But I would talk to someone knowledgeable at your CAD plating shop to be sure.

Posted by: Luke M Jul 19 2018, 10:45 AM

I got mine today..Thanks again

Posted by: Philip W. Jul 19 2018, 10:53 AM

If the tool wasn’t secured I think it chaffed the edge of the envelope; the material is light enough to wear through.
Showed the envelop to the postmaster as soon as I opened the PO Box, so she’s on record as to the claim

Posted by: jim_hoyland Jul 27 2018, 06:18 PM

Got mine today, seems like it’s a very tight fit ?
If anyone near me in So Cal needs to borrow, it’s gonna be available
