Rotating the flex plate or flywheel on a Detroit V8 can whip you in a hurry. Any who have been under the hood a few times to do this will tell you that it takes some arm power to move that bad boy. A flywheel turner tool is the ticket.
The turner tool has an arm that hooks in the teeth on the flexplate or flywheel and cranks the wheel around via a fulcrum on the other end — that hooks into teeth at that end — and applies leveraged force to move the stubborn wheel.
It may be slow and require resetting into the teeth each time you move it, but that’s not a concern if you’re not busting veins in your forearms to do it.
Street pricing starts at $12.
