    Thanks part of the enjoyment for me is inventing things to do the work with so far its like 18 or so tools to pull out the Power assemblies and regasket them in our 567B engine.

    The Museum I am with is the Reading Company Technical & Historical Society

    @Tooling17039 - Really nice work, and on a scale that's way beyond my skills. I couldn't help noticing that in the photos of the "Cylinder Head rotating tool" that the hole for the hook is drilled above the center line of the beam and it looks like the beam's top half, above the hole, is flexing or bent under the weight. The whole assembly is massive, but might be undone by this one spot. Like I said, this is not my area of expertise. Think of me as the little kid pointing and saying "Is that right?".

    [QUOTE=Tooling17039;232459]A large majority of the tools I have made will work for the 645 or 710 blocks found in later model EMD power. Even though they were built for the 567 series.

    One of the newer ones a Cylinder Head rotating tool. This was made cause the Heads weigh over 100lbs and can be a bit cumbersome to manhandle.

    Interesting you caught that, The photo was of my mock up and test of the tool. I actually addressed that issue and added some cross braces to keep things in place a little better.
