Yup you're 100% right D!!

Perhaps we should wait till what the guys at Serpent say about this.

But in any case, I believe no one should do without this glow plug tool since you need it to tighten down the flywheel nut onto the flywheel.

If ever was there an award for the best glow plug wrench, this would be it. Made with Hudy springsteel, it will outlast any car.

Do you have a JPG utility or a picture viewer that came with the camera? I believe they should have a resize function to resize your pics. Else, you can always make adjustments to your digicam to take smaller pics (800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 maybe) of your car. I think it should be under the pics quality section in the camera. That should give you a smaller file size suitable for posting on this forum.

I just posted the part number for the Hudy glowplug wrench. It's 107581.

The sizes should be the same as building the 705;

1.5mm Hex Allen Wrench
2.0mm Hex Allen Wrench
2.5mm Hex Allen Wrench
3.0mm Hex Allen Wrench
5.0mm Hex Allen Wrench (can be gotten from the Hudy Glowplug wrench)
7.0mm Hex Socket Wrench
4mm Phillips screw driver
5mm Phillips screw driver

If you can get the ball tip type of allen drivers, get the ones for the 2 mm and 2.5 mm driver. Useful for those hard to reach places.
