    Stuck engine flywheel tool

    here's some tools I made to break a stuck engine loose by turning the flywheel. You can see the progression of the tools made in order to have enough strength to break it loose. I had also soaked the cylinders in penetrate for 2 years before I got it un-stuck!

    Perhaps you have given this post the wrong name.
    "Engine Turning" is a method of metal decoration using a rotating tool and grinding paste.
    The tool itself is great, but was better described by the originator as a "Stuck engine flywheel tool".
    Personally I would call it a "Seized Engine Cranking Tool".
    I do appreciate the thankless good work that the editors do, so please don't take this personally.

    I agree, this is specifically for turning the flywheel of a stuck or seized engine. I think there might be some confusion by folks that are thinking of engine turning for metal decoration.
    Can the title be updated?
    Thanks

    OK, all set. Thanks for the recommendation, that is a more suitable name.
