  2. What Rachets Do You Use?

    I use a Snap On; Ratchet, Dual 80 Technology, Flex-Head, Comfort Handle, 3/8" drive, 9 9/16" The fine tooth is really, really nice. If you haven't tried one go find one to try out. It makes it possible for you to use a ratchet in confines that previously you'd have to use a wrench. I...

  3. What do you use to lift/pull your engine?

    Just wondering what idea's anyone might have here for manipulating engines/transmission combos. I've installed/replaced engines and transmissions on multiple occasions in my past, but have a different situation now - I live in a suburban type home that has "trusses" in the roof, and while I have...

  4. What Conventional Wrenches Do You Use?

    Snap On: Set, Wrench, Metric, Combination, Long, 12-Point (10 pcs.) (10-19 mm) Stock #: OEXLM710B Like I said, good tools make a big difference. But honestly you can get the flank drive style wrenches from most tool manufacturers. What makes them better is instead of using the edges of the...

  6. What air impacts wrenches do you use?

    Right now I've only got my one 1/2" Snap On MG725 Been pretty happy with it. Best part about it for me, it's got a silencing chamber! Hurray to being able to hear 10 years from now. PS: The 600ft/lbsFW and 800ft/lbsREV isn't bad either.

  7. Welders...

    I'm looking to pick myself up a welder. Nothing serious, just to get practice and learn and such for welding. I'm looking at this one from Harbor Freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/120-amp-230-volt-mig-and-flux-welder-97503.html It runs off household power (which I like). Also it's able to...

  10. Vacuum Oil Change system

    Since the filter is on the top of the 3S engine and it is harder to get the jack under the car, I decided to try one for vacuum oil extractors. For those not familiar, you put a tube down the dipstick tube, pump the vacuum vessel to build vacuum, open the valve and the oil magically come up...

  12. Tools FS

    Both are brand new, never used. Matco compression gauge and vacuum gauge set. Great to help you diagnose problems with your engine. Comes with directions and a few adapters if you want to test other engines . $80 SHIPPED in the continental US. If you're interested and you're outside that, shoot...

  13. Tool list for newbies

    Hey guys, If you don't know already I'm pretty new to working on cars and actually COMPLETELY new to owning a car! So I thought it would really benefit me and maybe some other members to create a list of tool one would need to do most jobs around a Celica. I'm going to be swapping the...

    I thought maybe an article about soldering would be something I could contribute here that would be of interest - and the purpose of this post is to gauge the relative interest of all here in such an article. If any are interested - I can follow up wit more details/pics and take some more effort...

  15. Sockets: Mastercraft/Craftsman VS. Mac/Snapon

    well what do you guys say? is there a noticable difference? is it actually worth getting a set of snap-on or mac vs the other stuff? forget the difference in price, and maybe warranty? and just compare tools to tools

  16. Single most useful tool you own?

    I'm curious as to what the 'go to' tool is for you guys? You know, the one tool that you find yourself using on almost every job and that always gets the job done? I'm in the middle of stripping down and 'refreshing' the engine out of my Celica, in a carpark, without access to electricity or...

  17. Ryobi Drill Press

    Just picked it up! Came with a full set of titanium metal bits (more than i'll need) and 2.5" drill press vice. Found it on craigslist for $100, barely used over the past couple years. The guy used it to make a dozen or so brackets for his kit car that he had in the garage. :woot: Here it is...

  20. Preferred scan tool

    Anybody got a recommendation on a good OBD2 scan tool? Not just a code reader-but the kind that reads all the sensors and gives me crap like short/long term fuel trim and pulse width,,etc? Ive been reading online and hear one person bitch about how it doesnt work on some models, etc. What have...
