Default New sludge tube tool that works!!

Hey guys, made a new tool today to get a stubborn sludge tube out.. Check it out.. It may have been done before, but fuck it... Here it is again... I used a hardened bolt with the head ground down to fit nicely into the sluge tube without getting stuck.. Made some threads with the tap first, then put the bolt in all the way, then insert the tap, and start threading it in... The tube comes right out...
Then to put the new tube in, I used a drift that came in one of those Heli-coil kits.. Fits perfectly....

New tool I made today...

Insert machined hardened bolt

insert tap, after you have already tapped threads in there...

and there she is...

turn the tap until the tube comes out...

Cant put a price on a thought like that....

This is a drift to put the new sludge tube back in... I think its a spark plug helicoil drift...hint hint...

New tube installed...

Old plug installed.. Nothing wrong with using the old one if you dont fuck it up taking it,out......
