Here's a heads up everyone. The Deep Offset wrenches from which the Head Nut Tool is made are becoming harder and harder to find to find, not to mention the costs seem to be going up as well.
I am going to be ordering some new wrenches soon, in an effort to keep the cost down. Those of you who have not checked the Torque on your Cylinder Heads, I strongly recommend you do this sooner rather than later. You do not have to buy my specialized tool, you can borrow one from a friend if you can find one. Cheers!!!

Alfa Montreal - Head Nut Tool

As you can see from pictures of the Head Nut Tool on this Thread, The 1/2" Drive is located directly in line above the Center Line of the Cylinder Head Stud and Nut. There is no Lever Moment. If you set the Torque Wrench at 70 Ft. lbs. That is the value your Head Nut is tightened to. The original tool was designed that way and so is this one.

I currently have 5 New Cylinder Head Nut Tools available. They cost $110 each (same price) plus shipping.
Let me know if you would like one. With summer coming, and most of you wanting to drive your cars, please check the Torque on your Cylinder Head Nuts. Believe me, I am not being an "Alarmist"!!!

Hello everyone,
I now have 4 Cylinder Head Nut Tools remaining. If you want one, I suggest you get one of these invaluable tools and at least check the Torque values on the head of your car. With the high temperatures this summer, do not risk the chance of a Cylinder Head Gasket failure. Just saying....

I have just sent a Cylinder Head Nut Tool to Slovenia. Andrej Petrusa, please let me know when you receive the package. It was ordered through Ebay, and I do not have your email address, so could not send the shipping details. Contact me if you want the Customs Declaration - CN22 Number. Best regards.

All outstanding orders have been filled.

I still have 3 New Cylinder Head Nut Tools remaining. Contact me if you need one for your car, as you will not be able to check the Cylinder Head Torque without this Tool.

Hello all,
I have 1 Head Nut Tool remaining and will make one more batch of the Cylinder Head Nut Tools. After that no more, so if you want one now, I suggest you put your name down. As an explanation, the Deep Offset Wrenches are becoming very difficult to find and their prices have been steadily rising. Does not make financial sense due to the time and effort involved. Thank you all!

Hello!
I was afraid this would happen! The last of the Head Nut Tools have been committed and sent to the customers. I then ordered a new batch of Deep Offset 17.0mm Wrenches. I am currently still waiting for them to be delivered. This is not a "shop" and as such I cannot make parts and stock them on the shelf. This is the reason for my slow response in shipping the finished Head Nut Tools out of here. Can you believe it, I cannot buy a 17.0mm Deep Offset Wrench anywhere in the USA? Yes I may be able to buy a few from the US suppliers, but the prices are astronomical and I would not be able to keep the cost of the finished Head Nut Tool at the level it is currently. Contact me if you have a question. Thank you.
