Cylinder hold down tools. Self-explanatory. Keeps cylinders in place while you rotate crankshaft to connect the next connecting rod.

Do you see the homemade improvement on our Huth chassis buggy.

First shot is drag strip on Maidenform Flats in the late 1960.

Second shot is Oldsmobile Hill at Pismo Dunes circa 1970.

Heres one of many. This one helps me stuff 3/16" cotton cord into a spark plug hole, to hold a valve up to install stem seals, replace spring, etc. Handy, for sure.

Adding starter bench test harness. Made up from parts around garage. Only item bought was the momentary heavy duty press to start switch from Northern Tools ($10). Still need to mount switch on a plate which will bolt on with the negative cable on on mounting lug. I have a battery with 1/4-20 terminal bolts, which will be used for starter testing.

It seems I'm always making up some sort of a little deal for doing something.

My brother told me when I was young it's a good idea to paint them red so you know later that it's something special and not just an odd scrap.

It's not a tool but I found something nifty yesterday. The forward bolt holding the generator can be difficult to get a 9/16 socket on, especially when it's sporting the big pulley. Someone had used a fuel pump holding bolt which is a 3/8-16 bolt with a 1/2" hex head. The bolt head is a little shallow which might make it easier to round off but it worked okay this time.
