Valve tool
« on: October 30, 2017, 02:38:55 PM »
 Every time I adjust the valves on my P250S I wish I had the proper tool to hold the adjuster in place instead of needle nose pliers.

 I have not sourced the proper valve tool and service manual doesn't give a part number for it.  Has anyone found or know where I can get one?


Doh! Ebay!

Okay I ordered a set for $15 8mm,9mm and 10mm

Thanks anyway.. Got post happy.

I use the pliers end of my stripper/crimper, never had a problem that I saw the need for a special tool, but I might try the screw idea since it's free.
