So, which do you find to be most useful? As I'm running pretty much stock, I'm probably in for the fine & coarse metric, & the website says ~30% off right now...

I would get both. But 8mm 1.25 is a useful one.

I just ordered both. At $25 each set I'm already ahead of every other time I needed them (two broken EZ-outs; 3 broken drill bits; week and a half looking for help once & $20 box of steaks for my buddy who finally got the last one done for me...)

Thanks for the tip, Al!

This is great for checking break lights and keeping the RPM at a constant rate with only one person.

Here is a special jig so you can remove the crank pulley while it is still in the van.

When working on these things you find a distorted nut here and there and I have used these tools to get them off you hammer it on the offending nut and most times it takes it right off other times it breaks it off.
