Measurements of Factory Ball Joint Tool

#1
HI All

I'm looking for the dimensions of the factory ball joint tool 601476. This is the tool for breaking the tapers on the lower and upper strut ball joints, looks a bit like a L.

Anybody have one?

Yours
Vern

It's actually just what I'm calling the clamp, the part with the two threaded legs. I have good dimensions (well, sensible ones anyway) for the saddle. Dimensions for A to E.

Weird that the jpg crops to the art bounds.

Yours
Vern

OK I'll sort the tool out and take some measurements.

A 12mm
B 12mm
C 126mm
D 101mm
E 35mm

The only reason it's in Metric is the pins are 12mm, not 1/2" as obviously they would be if the world was a sane place.

Save some money perhaps? I did my ball joints and bought a small splitter from Machine Mart and ground a piece out of it to fit the joints, worked a treat.
