plus a 10mm, 19mm, flat and phillips screwdriver and a power probe! I reckon this would cater for 95% of all problems!

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.
Pliers.
Locking pliers (mole grips).
Something that's .4mm approx - for setting points gap.
Extending handle wheel brace.
WD40.
Cable ties.
Duct tape (if you have the space for a roll - but you can buy small rolls).
Couple of rags.
Latex/nitrile gloves.

As for spare parts...
Fan belt,
Spark plugs,
Points,
Condensor,
Fuses,
Bulbs,
Wire (electrical),
A small selection of nuts, bolts, washers, and screws.
thanks dude, seems like that should be enough to get you out of the shit in most situations :hangloose

Big hammer, WD40, ducttape.

If it breaks Duct tape it together..
If it doesnt move, WD40 it..
If its completely stuck or your angry, hit it with the hammer.
