Possble Cheap Wrench For Knock-ons

PostPost by: tdafforn » Sat Nov 08, 2003 5:55 pm

Has anyone thought of using a 3 legged oil filter wrench for undoing/doing up knock-on wheels?
eg <a href='http://www.aok.com.tw/left-s.htm' target='_blank'>oil filter wrench</a>
I saw one at the local motor parts store and though it might work, and might be better than using a hammer!!

I don't think it can handle the torque required.

Hi -

Agree with Mike -- no oil filter is going to take 200-250 lbs.-ft. Plus it only works CCW. Wrong direction for half our nuts/K.O.s. Sorry. :blink:

Best regards,
Bob
