So this tool actually exists...

I bought it for $15, and just needs a little widening of the gaps to work with the adjuster rings. But seems to be a pretty good general purpose tool!

That does look like a handy tool but is not heavy enough to use on the diff side adjusters.

It looks like a fuel pump retaining nut (plastic) for a Volvo car.

Here is what I made for the side adjusters and even still I have bent it once.




Below you will see two other tools, one is what is commercially available and one that I made a long time ago out of an old circular saw blade. That one worked surprisingly well, I never broke that one.

Here is my tool I made from ideas on this forum. 3/4" drive gets the job done! Yes, that is a split Harbor Freight socket that was replaced under warranty, and I got to keep the broken socket. Junk you say? Tool spare parts I say!grinning smiley

I made my brng adj sleeve tool in 1970 very similar to what Frank has. I use 1/2" drive ratchet with short pipe over the handle if needed.

Maybe my adjusters went easier than most because Frank's tool broke them loose last year!
