Valve wrenches

I respect the companies who are selling the wrenches for the valve adjustments, but I was not one of the people who wanted to pay $50 or whatever it is to do such a simple task, I went and bought 2 wrenches from Sears for like $2.50 each when I was there one day took the torch and bent both wrenches and ground the heads to make them a little thinner. I just wanted to share that if you dont own the wrenches already and dont want to pay 50 bucks there is another option. goodluck

Super easy. Takes like 5 minutes. And a bent wrench is like 50.00 a piece. One was all i needed bit nice to have 2.

Deja vu all over again.....

Do a search on the topic of valve adjustment wrenches. You've got a good idea, but its been discussed nearly to death. Don't take this to heart though. It might have been a new idea.......

Welcome to the forum.
