It looks exactly like the one I bought from the Morgan carbtune site. And it works perfectly on all 3 carbs with no dismantling needed.

And that one on ebay is the same as the one I was looking at and it is A LOT cheaper than from Morgan.

Thanks for the link

This is the tool I use.

I found this tool one day in a contractors battery drill. Asked him where he got it, the local hardware store 22 bucks. Bought one and use it with a screwdriver handle for misc. bits. the tool works great only a little tight on #1 which is over the coolent tube on the left. I use a small flat tip bit and count turns by watching the bit not the handle because it is slightly less then 1:1. The long ear/handle you see on it is removeable. Tool fits in tool bag with handle. Luv it.

I have these finger bit drivers from Sears and they are great for the outside carbs, but I cannot get to the middle carb with them.
