Flyin' Miata Tools

I purchased some used Flyin' Miata tools to use with my Miata projects. Here are a few of the tools and how they have been used. All of them have worked well.
I used the crank bolt tool instead of my homemade tool to remove the crank bolt on my 1999 AE yesterday. To remove the bolt, I attached the tool and used a small crow bar resting on the frame and sway bar to hold the crank. To install the bolt, I allowed the bar to press against the alternator pulley. Both removal and install was a breeze.
The crank seal tool uses the crank bolt to press the seal into place. Once the crank bolt stops turning, the seal is installed.
The cam seal tool works the same way as the crank seal tool. Notice I drilled a 1/16" hole and inserted a drywall screw to remove the old seal. I was careful to get any small chips with a magnet before installing the new seal.
The rear main seal tool also works the same way too, but a couple of the flywheel bolts are used to press the seal in. I needed a puller for a flywheel on an old outboard. So, I drilled some holes in the rear main seal tool. Now it doubles as a puller. I may add some holes to allow it to be used as the front pulley mount remover also.
The cam gear ninja tool fits between the cam sprockets. I used it when removing and installing the cam gear bolts.
Again, all the tools worked great!
