Forum: The right (and wrong) tools

Discuss all the tools for your project: what you use, what you broke, etc.

  1. 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...

  2. Soldering 101

    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...

  3. Best Tools

    No, this isn't a contest for the mods... I am talking hand tools, and not of the flesh variety. I destroyed another Craftsman tool today, and every time I go to get them replaced, I get one from China. Do they make any decent tools in the USA?

  7. Engine hoist woes..

    So my hoist doesn't sit level :( I fought with it removing the engine, and just hanging the engine on the stand it doesn't sit level. In order to have all the wheels on the ground, I need to stand on the one rear corner and it'll balance out. I'm thinking one of those engine levelers will...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  11. My Christmas present to myself...

    I have four cars - and a one car garage. Of these four cars, which are all Celicas, three of them are "keepers" and one is for parts. I will be needing to really get my hands dirty after the holidays - as I have to pull some engines. I had some big ideas about putting up a beam in my...

  12. Good soldering equipment?

    So after trying the craftsman soldering iron (again), and realizing (again) that all of the tips are bad--they don't heat right, the core gets hot, but the outside just chips and falls apart, without reaching a usable temperature--I'm ready to buy something descent. I don't need professional...

  13. #1 tool for diagnosing automotive electrical systems = POWER PROBE 3

    http://www.powerprobeonline.com/power-probe-iii.html It is next on my Definitely Buy tool shortlist. I have used the older models and this one blows them away. I can't begin to tell you all how much time this would save a pro or diy mechanic.

  15. 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...

  16. Pneumatic tools

    Whats your preferred make/style? I'm using a Kobalt set right now. 1/2" impact wrench, 3/8" ratchet, and a few other goodies that came in the set. I need to pick up a 3/8" impact wrench (as sometimes this 1/2" is a beast to get into smaller spaces). I'm thinking of finding something around...

  17. I need a decent, preferably cheap air compressor.

    I just need a compressor that will have enough CFM to push a decent impact. Cheaper is better. Must be able to zip off tire lugs, flywheel bolts, etc. Typical stuff. Doesn't need to be able to break stuck CV nuts or anything. Any suggestions? I know absolutely nothing about compressors or air...

  18. Harbor Freight Earthquake Impact Wrench

    Bought one a couple days ago and used it to do a tire rotation today. Freaking amazing. Just as a "test," I threw it on my Crank Pulley nut today to see if it would take it off (since I'm doing my timing belt this weekend anyway). It took literally six seconds before it came loose. It hadn't...

  19. New (old) flaring tool

    I have this rust bucket Corolla that I am trying to get setup for my step-son to use - and it has rusted brake lines. So I have tried patching in some extensions - with limited results. I remember when I worked on my Plymouth cars - I redid all my brake and fuel lines from scratch - and I...
