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.
