Homemade D-Tool - Examples, How To and Pics?

1515 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  CAPTDON
Okay I'm cheap, but I recently received the new Idle Adjustment screws from new.thruxton and now I need a d-tool to install them...

Has anyone made one and can you post a how to and/or a pic? I simply want to remove the existing ones, install the new "tool-less" ones and be done with it.

Some use a .22 shell that has been crimped.

I used the plastic coated wire connectors (you know, they come in red, yellow, and blue, and you crimp wires together with them). You just need to get the screws out once, then you can cut a slot into them for a flat-head....or use your new screws.


Do not loose the rubber washers when removing the screws.
