This discussion is listed in the FAQs, but you have to really look for it. It is in the Books / Websites / Diagrams you may need: section. Then after you click on that link, you cliCk on the link that one brings up and you are there.

Might be easier to make this discussion one you follow and have it listed in your Control Center.

The issue is holding the alternator fan nut / armature shaft in order to apply book value torque to the assembly. Here is shown 2 ways.

Another way not shown would be a 15/16 box-end crows-foot wrench. With it you need to have it attached 90 degrees to the torque wrench or recalculate the applied torque due to the added length to the torque wrench to connect to the fan nut.

Here's a tool for intalling a throwout bearing shaft or stator shaft in a differential. The cone portion is movable, it centers the tool in the differential and you drive in the shaft until it's seated.

This tool is to remove the pinion adjuster sleeve on a powerglide differential. Last year I worked on a PG diff that had a very tight pinion adjuster. I couldn't break the adjuster loose and didn't want to use the hammer on it, so I made this tool. The threaded rod goes through the pinion shaft and tightens the tool to the adjuster, a 1/2" breaker bar is used to turn the tool. I have Rex Johnson's diff tools for the side adjuster and manual trans pinion adjuster, but this is one he doesn't offer.

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