    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
