A while back we posted about a transmission adapter for a normal jack — it drew only one comment, saying that they’re unstable and that Harbor Freight carries a 450-lb transmission jack for $70. This gas tank adapter for transmission jacks might be the same deal, but since I’ve never pulled a transmission or gas tank, I figured I’d ask y’all if this is hot or not. Street pricing on the gas tank adapter runs $145 and up, and the only one I see is from Sunex.
Does a gas tank adapter for your transmission jack lift your spirits, or does it give you that sinking feeling?
Removing press-fit parts can be a trick, especially when you may need to reuse the part. That’s when it’s handy to have a slide hammer puller kit around.
These type of kits are essentially the same as the slide hammers used by auto body workers, but come with a set of adapters to grab onto (or screw into) all sorts of objects. We’ve used ours to pull bearings and oil seals, though we’ve heard of all kind of other applications as well.
The kit shown here is made by Sunex — a brand we’ve seen before — and is available from a wide variety of retailers starting at around $60. The kit varies slightly from retailer to retailer, but most include a 5 lb. hammer, a 3-jaw puller, a 2-jaw puller, a puller hook, a rear axle puller, and a dent puller. Be sure and check the specific kit you locate before you buy.
