HEAVY DUTY PROFESSIONAL QUALITY LEVER STYLE GREASE GUN – 3101502

Carbyne Tools 4500 PSI Lever Grease Gun 3101502
Carbyne Tools Heavy Duty Lever Lever Grease Gun – 3101502
  • Die-cast head generates 4500 PSI working pressure
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum core with tough and attractive anodized finish
  • Heavy duty high leverage handle for smooth pumping action
  • Ribbed rubber sleeve adds grip in slippery situations
  • Includes heavy-duty 12 inch flex hose with kink guards and cap closure
  • Includes 6 inch rigid extension
  • Bleed valve eliminates air pockets
  • Accepts all standard 14 ounce grease cartridges and bulk fill
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Who says a grease gun can’t look and feel as great as it works?  Not us, and here’s the proof.  This exceptionally well thought out heavy-duty grease gun offers professional quality construction, features and performance at a DIY price.

It starts with an aircraft quality aluminum core that’s strong and lightweight. A full 14 ounce grease cartridge weighs enough on its own, so why add to your burden with a heavy steel tube?

And bonus, because the Carbyne grease gun core is aluminum, we’re able to anodize it for great looks and added durability.

Mated to this core is a die-cast head that generates 4500 PSI of working pressure.  That means more grease is delivered faster and less work for you.

Last time we checked, grease can be…greasy…so we’ve added a ribbed rubber sleeve for your pleasure.  That translates to more secure grip and fewer slip-ups.

And we’ve included two extensions for your convenience:

  • A 12 inch flex hose that reaches around corners and tight spots to latch onto those remote zerk fittings
  • A 6 inch rigid extension for faster coupling when access isn’t a problem

And when it comes time to load or reload, you can slip in a standard 14 ounce grease cartridge or opt for bulk or suction fill.

The cherry on the cake? A limited lifetime warranty.

All for a nice price. Nothing slippery about that!

OFFSET O2 OXYGEN SENSOR WRENCH – 3101504

  • 7/8 inch / 22 mm, 3/8 inch drive 6 point hex socket fits most O2 sensors
  • Cutaway design protects sensor wires from damage
  • Offset design for added leverage and easier access to oxygen sensors in confined spaces
  • High strength chrome molybdenum steel construction
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Replacing the Oxygen (O2) sensors on a car is one of those DIY repair procedures that seems more complicated than it is.  And when you consider the price a mechanic or dealership charges for the job ($150-$300),  you’d think it was rocket science.

Reality: with the right tools (most of which you probably have already), changing an O2 sensor is easier than a brake job and not much harder than changing your oil.

We suggest you check out a couple of videos on YouTube, then decide for yourself.

If you’re ready to tackle the job and save a  few hundred bucks, you’ll need a few tools and supplies:

  1. Replacement O2 Sensors for your vehicle
  2. WD-40 or PB Blaster to pre-soak the sensor threads
  3. A 3/8” drive breaker bar (around 18 inches long)
  4. A 22mm Offset O2 Sensor Wrench (we like ours)
  5. A torque wrench (to properly tighten the replacement sensors)
  6. Anti-seize thread compound (for the new replacement sensors)
  7. A floor creeper (optional but makes getting under your vehicle a lot easier)

If you’re a DIY mechanic, you likely have all of the above already, except the 22mm Offset O2 Sensor Wrench.  You’ll need this to reach and turn most sensors, as they’re typically recessed inside exhaust heat shields.

And the cutout design prevents damage to sensor wires that a conventional socket would cause.

The Carbyne Tools 22mm Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench will do the job nicely at a great price. It is designed with the optimal offset to reach and grip virtually every upstream and downstream O2 sensor location.

The cutaway design makes it quick and easy to route the sensor wires out of harm’s way.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Attach a 3/8” ratchet or breaker bar to the integrated 3/8 inch square drive.
  2. Pass the sensor wire bundle through the wrench cutout then mate the wrench head to the O2 sensor hex head
  3. Slowly and carefully apply torque to the sensor to loosen it. If the sensor is frozen on, treat the threads with WD-40 or PB Blaster, preferably a few times over a few hours.
  4. Repeat the loosening operation

If possible, start pre-treating all sensor threads a day or two ahead of your planned replacement with WD-40 or PB Blaster. This will reduce the amount of torque required to break loose frozen sensors and make rounding off less likely.

Automotive specialty sockets are the kind of tools you don’t know you need…until you need them. Each one is specially designed for the job at hand, with designs that are refined through years of use and user feedback.

Changing out sensors, switches and sending units is the kind of repair well within reach of the DIY mechanic. Yet mechanics and dealerships charge hundreds of dollars to change out even a single sensor.  All you need is the right tools, and this seven piece socket set covers 95% of the sensors you’ll come across on your car or truck. Simply add the appropriate ratchet or breaker bar and you’re all set.

 

36MM Deep Impact Socket 1/2 inch Drive 6 Point – 3101507

  • For use on vehicle axle nuts and other automotive fasteners
  • 6 point design for secure fit and grip
  • Deep well design for added reach
  • Impact rated chromoly steel construction
  • Black phosphate finish

You probably won’t find this big, burly 36mm impact socket in stock at your local auto parts store.  They don’t sell enough of them to justify carrying inventory. Ironic, considering it’s one of those must-have tools there’s simply no substitute for.  It’s a must-have when removing axle nuts on many vehicles, including Jeep, Chevy, Ford and many others.

Not only is it the correct size, it’s built to take punishment. The premium quality impact-rated chromoly steel offers more than enough strength to resist the high torque loads needed to loosen frozen, rusted-on axle bolts with an impact gun or breaker bar.

The six point design provides sure grip to reduce the chance of rounding and slippage.   Deep well design makes it easier to reach and hold recessed axle bolts in dished wheels, while the ½ inch square drive makes a handy hook up for impact guns and breaker bars.

Piston Ring Compressor 2″ to 5″ Capacity – 3101506

  • For compressing piston rings during piston installation
  • Twin steel bands maintain even pressure on stacked piston rings
  • Adjustable tension reduces ring breakage
  • Handy thumb level release tension for easy removal
  • Fits rings for pistons from 2 inch to 5 inch diameter

The piston ring compressor is another must-have tool for which there is no substitute. This one is simple and effective, and fits pistons from 2 inches to 5 inches in diameter.

Here’s how it works:

  1. With the piston rings installed on the piston, lubricate the piston and rings with engine oil.
  2. Insert the square drive wrench into the spring compressor.
  3. Carefully release the ratchet lock and rotate the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the opening is slightly larger than cylinder head and rings.
  4. With the square drive wrench oriented towards the top of piston, install the ring compressor onto the piston and over the rings.
  5. To aid installation, piston skirt should extend at least 1/4″ below ring compressor.
  6. Tighten the ring compressor by rotating square drive wrench clockwise, making sure rings are fully compressed into grooves.
  7. Lubricate the cylinder walls with engine oil.
  8. Insert the piston into the cylinder and carefully push or tap the piston into the cylinder while maintaining downward pressure on the ring compressor.
  9. Once the piston is fully installed, carefully release the ratchet lock and rotate the wrench in counter-clockwise direction to remove.
