I said watch because when I zoomed it on the picture watch was engraved on the tool.
Blue bike tools are Park Tools. They’re like the snap-on of the bike world. I have that pedal wrench and countless other Park tools. Just remember the pedal on the non-drive side is reverse threaded.
Yep, it's a Park Tool. I just recently put pedals on my daughter's bicycle and I used a regular wrench. I had no idea I had one specific for the job, lol.
It’s nice that the wrench is thin. A lot of times the correct size open end or crescent is too wide. My bikes have carbon cranks, so scraping the epoxy with steel is a no-no.
I also have this guy here. I know it's a fancy wrench but I was also curious about the specific intended use. It's for a 1.5 inch nut and has the Parker logo on it. I'm guessing it's just a fancy line wrench that would be used by workers at a Parker Store?
I'm going to say it's for the fork nut that tightens down the handle bars.
Apparently it's not.
Do all those pieces work together? We have a couple of pullers that have two shells which are enclosed by a collar which holds them together in the puller. Is that the principle here?
the two weird shaped pieces work together I think, and the large cylinder piece works independently. I think. never seen any directions on how to use it, or how it all works together.
The only thing I can think of is some kind of press or swedging tool. Does it look like the two pieces might fit in the cylinder tool in some way?
I was an aircraft mechanic when I was in the Marines back in the late 70's and we had wrenches something like that in some of our tool boxes, but never 1 1/2", usually 7/16" up to about 3/4".
its a puller for the mechanical water pump seal on a Polaris 4 wheeler. the big cylinder fits over the outside, but when you pull the seal it comes apart. I think the other two pieces fit over the shaft through the middle of the part that's left in the engine. not positive about that part though. when I used it, I ended up screwing a screw into the second piece and carefully prying it out. Polaris service manual says you need to separate the engine case to remove that seal. great design that
Here's one I concocted today. It was made for one purpose, but could be used for another one as well.
Neither one is likely to be too challenging, but it won't hurt to give the thread a boost.
Flywheel turner do-Hickey
That's the other purpose.
I made it to hold the flywheel in position while torqueing the damper because the torque on the damper bolt is 460 lb/ft and I didn't think sticking a screwdriver in the teeth would be good enough. But yes, it could be used to bar the engine over too.
That is a Parker Par-Lok wrench, should be part number 860062-24. Mostly used on hydraulic fittings. Have a full set of those at work.
Not sure if you can still get them, Parker is now Parker-Hannifin.
