A post I recently commented on had me thinking about how much stuff I bought just to work on my Boxster. Maybe I should be renting stuff out.

Trans mission jack and Cycle jack to remove my motor


Motor tools

Valve compressor and lapping tool


Bleed down tester and Compression tester


LN bearing tool set


rod assembly tool set and timing tool. My home made rod snap ring tool.


Motor stand Harbor Freight, with my 2.7 motor

Brakes Wheel Suspension

Vacuum brake Bleeders


Ball joint tool and wheel puller perfect to push out the axles (priceless)


Tripple square sets
Lift

I have the same assortment for the same purpose - even a Mohawk 2 post lift.
In all my years working on Jaguars I had accumulated a lot of tools but compared to the Boxster ......
In addition the tools needed upgrading -for example the very high precision measuring tools for measuring bore taper and ovality. Of course if you have the money for a 3.6 ,hat can be saved towarf the wonderful 3.6 upgrade !

You can never be too rich, too thin or have too many tools! That's what Wallace Simpson meant to say!
