M103 and others flywheel locking tool, and spark plugs

Hi everyone!

I have two (2) flywheel locking tools available, brand new never used. Theu are the tool for the m102,103,104,111,601,602,603,605,606,611,612,613 engines. They include the two 90mm bolts required for proper use. One is still in its original package, the other is out of it but still never used. They are made by KTC auto tools.
I got these due to a monster shipping screw-up after having ordered one, and then another three months ago and they never showed up (until now) forcing me to order a third, which I got immediately. They're really well made, work great and cost wayyy less than the OEM tool (Baum?).
Long story short, shoot me a pm if you're interested and I'll give you my asking price including shipping.
I also have a bunch of spark plugs available, they are H9DC, the similar alternative to H9DC0. I have 30 of them available altogether.

-Chris

Yes it is to remove the harmonic balancer. To install it you either jack the car up a bit or drive onto ramps. Then go underneath and look on the bottom of the bellhousing where the oil pan meets the transmission. There will be a big rubber plug, or just a hole if thats missing. Take the plug out (if there). Its where the bolts for the flexplate/torque converter get installed/removed. Feel in there on the bottom and you'll feel the ring gear teeth.
Just above the hole there are two bolts, M6 size (10mm head). Take them out. Insert the tool with the teeth facing up and pointing into the hole towards the rear of the car. You'll feel it engage the ring gear. You might have to turn the engine a tiny bit to get the holes to line up. Use the two bolts the tool comes with to install it-the ones that were in the pan are too short to stand up against the force you will be putting on it. Tighten them just hand tight, no need to torque they are only M6 into aluminum.
Thats it! Once you get under there you'll see how easy it is, it makes life sooo much easier when you need to do this job versus wedging prybars/screwdrivers etc into places they ought not be.

Actually if you set the engine to 0 degrees on the crank (top dead center) it lines right up

stormyc88 thank you for that information. As i have a W124 it might be a job i need to do .And reading about what some owners have done to get the balancer off, made me cringe .Thank you again .Good luck, selling the plugs .

I purchased one of the tools, look forward to its use. A long time ago I was into flipping VW's (aircooled, type I) to pay tuition. Had no $ for "special" tools but did have to address the rather large bolt holding the flywheel. Held it by using long bolts into the clutch holes then using a clothes pole between them to keep anything from moving.
