Default Need a C900 Tool?

I've always wondered where one could buy C900 specific tools like the crankshaft seal installer, the flywheel locking tool, etc. Granted most can be improvised but what fun would that be?

I found this page while wandering the internet, http://lios.apana.org.au/~c900/tools.html

Neat list, interesting to see the tools are still being made.

Craig, is this our Craig from the land down under?

Anybody know if the saab fuel pump remover tool (as shown in the Bentley) is still available? Or any suggestions on how to remove the lockring that seems completely stuck?


Thanks.

The fuel pump rubber 'basket' is held in place by a large hose clamp. Access to undo the clamp through the little hole in the boot/trunk space next to the bit opening to life out the pump through is always fun. Once the clamp is free, the rubber basket should be easy to remove as it's just a slip fit over the lip of the opening in the plastic fuel tank. But I'm sure that there are lots of cases where the rubber basket breaks down and gets gooey and sticks.

After all the old 8V style fuel pickups are made from the same sort of rubber and they turn into black mush after many years of immersion in fuel.

The fuel level sender tool is still listed by a few places such as ZDmak, etc. but I have not actually seen one in the flesh. I've never one on Ebay.

Craig.

Thanks.

Dan... I made mine out of some randon steel i found knocking about the basement!

I made 2 V shaped cuts in it at the appropriate points to aid bending, and basically bent the ends 90 degreess into shape, so it resembled a small bridge

i could then grab it with big stilsons and turn it out
let me know if you need a picture

He he yep that's one of the pages I created. I'm glad it's turning out to be a good reference. I haven't purchased tools from all the suppliers I've linked to on that page so whether all the more unusual tools are still available as per the links is something I need to check every so often.

I've got a couple of different flywheel locking tools which both work well. The most useful tool so far is the balljoint tool but I can't find an equivalent to the genuine Saab one which works with both the top and bottom balljoints. It's great for tie-rod ends though.

Craig.
