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.

    I’ve always just removed the spark plugs and used a breaker bar and socket on the crankshaft nut.
