Another good idea
I got interested in removing and replacing the cam wheel on I5s without
removing the auxiliary radiator. You _don't_ want to slip and turn
the cam with any force!
Audi (MATRA) make a service tool - 3036 - it's a pin wrench that
engages in the cam wheel and provides a counterpull to the wrench.
Fine. Getting the bolt out is now easy. But putting it back at the
proper torque, when there's _no_ clearance for even a socket, let
alone a torque wrench.
Hayway Tools solved the problem - a K-D 19mm open-ended Crowfoot socket.
But - only available in 3/8" drive, and the torque wrench takes 1/2".
Still stymied - no room for an adaptor. Until they came up with
something I've never seen before - a 1/2" 'push through' piece (the
sort you push through to change the ratchet from left to right) with
a 3/8" drive formed on one end.
When I get time (!) I'll put a picture up.
