Engine Rebuild Tools

Metric Dial Gauges
A must for every Porsche owner, this metric dial gauge is not only useful, but it's also cool looking too! 0-10MM travel. Measures in 100ths of a millimeter. All steel and brass construction. Resettable pointers. Use with any standard holder.

The Metric Dial Gauge is a requirement for setting the sensitive timing adjustment of the cams when rebuilding a 911 motor. It's also essential when measuring the flywheel and crank shaft end play. The Z-block fixture is designed to hold the dial gauge while adjusting the 911 camshaft timing, and also comes with a dial gauge extension pin. The Dial Gauge Holder is designed to hold the gauge while measuring flywheel and pulley end play.

0-10MM travel. Measures in 100ths of a millimeter. All steel and brass construction. Resettable pointers. Use with any standard holder.

Camshaft Tools
Rebuilding your engine means doing the job right. Without the right tools, the best work in the world is useless. Don't scrimp on the tools when you're saving money by doing the process yourself.

The Camshaft Socket, Cam Bar, and 46mm Crows Foot Wrench are absolute essentials when assembling or tearing apart your 911 engine. The Camshaft nut that secures the timing requires almost 200 ft-lbs of torque, two people, and the right tools to remove. Attempting to remove this nut without the proper tools can result in damage to your engine!

The spring clips are used to secure the cam followers (tappets) inside the case while you are assembling it. Very often, these will fall out as you rotate and move the case around. Protect them from damage by installing these retaining clips.

The chain sprocket holder is a much more secure method of retaining the chain when you perform a tensioner replacement. Designed to prevent the chain from slipping off the Camshaft sprocket, this tool can be an invaluable life saver. Also used during the upgrade process is the chain tensioner tool, which holds the chain tensioners in their compressed position so that they may be easily installed in the engine.

Cylinder Head Tools
For all torque-to-yield fastener applications. Use with 1/2" Drive. Fits models requiring precise torque angle when tightening cylinder head bolts, M10, M20, M21, M30, M40, M41, M42, M43, M44, M50, M52, M54, M57,M60, M62, M70, M73, S14, S38, S50, S52, S62
Leakdown Testers
  • New design incorporates a round, anodized body with permanent laser etching for a sleeker appearance
  • New industrial interchange quick coupler allows use with most standard compression test adapters on the market (some adapters require removal of the valve core)
  • New larger, easier to read leakage gauge has one multi-colored band for measuring low, moderate and high leakage, and a scale range from 0-100% with a redesigned gauge boot for added protection
  • Pressure gauge has a dual scale dial with ranges from 0-100 psi and 0-7 BAR with a redesigned gauge boot for added protection
  • 2 gauge design allows for monitoring of input air-line pressure to ensure accurate testing
  • Easy to use regulator allows for precise control of input air pressure
  • Helps to pin-point problems indicated by a compression test or cylinder balance test
  • Uses shop air to determine leakage source & the amount of leakage measured in percentage of loss
  • Reducer adapter allows use of any 1/4" male quick connect plug
