Special tools

Postby BigBob » Thu Jun 29, 2017 9:55 pm

I used to have an almost complete set of special Suzuki tools which unfortunately got stolen some years ago.
I`m now trying to dismantle a bottom end to replace crank bearings and I`m struggling to remove the l/h nut on the end of the crank and the nuts on the balancer shafts.
Any ideas?

Put to flat pieces of metal either side of the conrod so that the piston sits on them. This will lock the crank off assuming that the piston is still fitted. If not, you can put a bar through the little end and use the same process with some form of metal box or flat spanning the crankcase. This would also lock the balance shaft of course. Not sure I would want to put all that strain on the chain though unless it was being replaced after.

Tried all that, but unfortunately it seems an immense amount of force is needed to shift these nuts and it all needs locking up with the correct Suzuki widgets.
I think even Geoff Capes would struggle :?

I have a compressor and air gun.
Its holding the crank etc in place while you try and remove a ginormous l/h crankshaft nut, and two balancer shaft nuts that`s the problem.
I guess I`ll have to figure out how to make up some tools to hold these items solidly in place while I use my air gun.
I was just hoping someone had done this before and could loan me the correct widgets or at least drawings of aforesaid widgets.
No point in reinventing the wheel I figure.
Oh well, no rush. Something will turn up eventually.
