Transmission Fill Plug Removal Tool (specially made)
Anyone wanna guess what I use this handy tool for that I made tonight? It saved me at least 20 minutes tonight! Once you guys guess what it is for, I will post pictures of it in use and change the title for better searching later on.
I took an old screw driver (that already had the flat broken) and cut off the flat. I then took a punch that I had with a broken punch end that is 7/16" on the flats for where it is held. I cut it about 1.5" long. I then welded the punch 7/16" end to the end of the screwdriver.
To use it I rotate the brake disk such that one of the holes in the disk closely aligns with the drain plug. I insert the tool through the hold and into the fill plug. I then use a 7/16" open end wrench to break the plug loose and then rotate it out with the screwdriver handle/tool.
Slick as snot!!! And makes it really easy to reinstall as you can't get your fingers in there to hold the plug and then rotate it (at least my fat fingers can't).
