88713.0258 - This tool is completely different and BETTER than the factory tool. The idea is that you take off the crank plug and screw in the tool which butts up against the crank and forces the cover straight off. You don't want to wiggle-wobble the cover off as the crank rides in a bush in the case and wobbling will oval-ize this bush. My tool is similar as it does the same job, but it does it better. You back off the bolt in the middle then screw in the 'plug' to the cover then lock it down. Now you tighten up the bolt which pushes the cover off the engine. Notice the end of the bolt - there is a round disk which swivels and rotates so you won't mar the end of your crank. The stock tool puts HUGE pressure on the threads of your case.... This takes care of all possible problems, making it easy to pull your cover without a hitch. This tool replaces 5 original factory big fat bolt tools - it works on roundcase and all squarecase bevel drives as well as narrowcase and widecase singles!!!! Includes a new crush washer for your plug as well.
As advertised, this tool makes the removal of the clutch case very easy. Remove the crankshaft plug, thread in the tool until it bottoms, back out the case screws, then lock the tool down and begin turning the bolt head; the case will pull straight off without distorting the crankshaft bearing bore. A tap with a rubber mallet might be necessary to get the case to let go completely.
