The tool isn't very hard to make - if you have a bit of machining & welding experience.
If it turns out you need one, I'll be glad to loan you mine for shipping charges only. And while you have it, you can make copies and become the European distributor!
Let me know.
I'm back again. I haven't done anything to my ignition wires yes. I'm in no hurry but when I am it would be nice to be prepared. The welding pliers I can see among the tools required has some things welded to it. I can make them but what about dimensions. Is there any description how the plugs, ferrules and springs are fitted to the wires? How do I know what kit I need? I'm converting from all-weather plugs to regular, 3/4" to 5/8".
