My power probe is by far favourite in my tool box. It is bascially a fancy test light for looking at the electrical system. Crocodile clips onto the battery, then a hand held unit that by way of a single LED tells you if a wire is power/ground/open. A flick switch lets you produce a power/ground which you can induce into a wire and the latest version is even a voltmeter which is useful when you have a vehicle that ain't charging. It's a beauty.jasnye2212 said:so:
-10 13 17 19 mm spanners
-flat + philips screwdrivers
-power probe? whatever one of those is?
-3/8 socket with ratchet and extension
.... anything else anyone?
thanks dude, seems like that should be enough to get you out of the shit in most situations :hanglooseMr_Wobble said:Spanners...
8, 10, 13, 17. May want to consider an extra 10 & 13mm. If you have the space, add a 12, 14, 15 and 19. Make sure they're combination spanners (open end at one end, ring at the other).
Medium to large adjustable spanner (with jaws big enough for the crank shaft pulley nut).
Same for sockets and ratchet. Plus a 4 inch extension bar, and spark plug socket.
Screwdrivers - Philips, Posidrive, medium flat blade, short stubby flat blade. May want to consider a multi-tip ratchet screwdriver too (if you have the space).
Medium sized hammer.
Locking pliers (mole grips).
Something that's .4mm approx - for setting points gap.
Extending handle wheel brace.
Duct tape (if you have the space for a roll - but you can buy small rolls).
Couple of rags.
As for spare parts...
A small selection of nuts, bolts, washers, and screws.
