converting a cheap wrench to a needed 36MM
« on: September 13, 2017, 07:07:48 pm »
Had a 36MM combo, and long ago borrowed never returned. Doing a water pump job.. so its a cheap 10" Cresent never stayed set floppy. take the screw out , then the roller.. slide out jaws onto fan hub , I had mine off for job so it was easy to set on and measure fit. then I ground down the top 2 rows of thumb roller adjuster, then several of the lower jaw top part of grooves. to sorta lock the jaws at 36 MM. It could use a quick tack with a welder, I don't have, but it stayed where 36mm is. I painted it shaker can red.. So easy spot. Now to get the fan hub off w/o a 36 mm in 1st place was fun .. I took my bottle jack handle and a 2 # hand sledge. about 1/4 end of pipe place on left side of fan hub nut, it will mess the pipe up a little, but a quick tap makes the hub nut turn left to loosen. then used a small pipe wrench to finish loosening the nut. that when I did the wrench to fit for getting it back on easier and future use.
