Does anyone know who makes a Piston Locking Tool for a turbo button?

I don't know of any Turbo Piston locking tools...

FYI...Most won't recommend using them because they can easily cause damage to the piston. Most will use a flywheel wrench or channel lock pliers to hold the flywheel still while removing, and installing the clutchnut...

Hope this helps...

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

This is the piston locking tool you're looking for. One side is turbo and the other is standard.

However, like Rob said I also don't use piston locking tools (unless I really have to) because I don't want to damage the connecting rod, etc.

another alternate is to fill the combustion chamber with fuel through the exhaust and hydrulic lock it, again this is a last resort option.
Nil for now
