You are right , but may be the thread title needs bit of an editing , it can be 'Tools for off roaders , etc .

Jokes apart but going by the letter of law there must be very few tools that will classify as ' Off road tools ' , ( may be only recovery gear )
Tools itself are versatile , you can use it in workshop or on Road ,

So I guess its the ' Users head ' ( mind ) or presence of mind that will enable him to choose & take along & use the above displayed tools on the Trail itself

Hey not at all , in fact welcome to the party , not only you but all those Jeepers

Now going back to the main topic , here is a Spanner ( 17 mm Ring ) which I specially use for the 2112 cc Peugeot exhaust , as there is very narrow space for other tool to perform ( this was shown earlier also , but adding with illustration

I wonder who/how-many has ever seen a spanner like that.! What is the technical name for that?

Right, may be this thread should be called a Jeepers tools thread. All tools here are super and good to have, many - MUST. A breakdown can happen even on highway and few tools can help you out.

Sudharshan - Help me with a pic of this tool in question...

If you remove the plunger and keep it and put the 27 mm cover only, the solenoid does not perform its intended function of stopping the fuel flow so you can merrily drive the vehicle even with a dead battery or in the worst case even without a battery. I recall that in the rotary FIP, there used to be a mechanical stop lever, which could be operated by a cable similar to the MDI engine. Just check if the lever is there. If yes, please attach a cable and use it to stop the engine and just knock the solenoid plunger off.
How does one operate it? I mean, is something other than the 27MM deep box spanner, like a long ROD thats needed?

I bought it many years back ,when I was 'shopping ' for tools -- I saw it on the racks & asked about it to the owner . According to him these kind of spanners are used in Cummins diesels . Anyway I liked it & I bought it .
But frankly wasn't sure about its use ,though later on it proved useful in many a odd jobs .

Not only that but practice to use & most importantly common sense & good presence of mind will rescue you

Those are called "Half moon ring spanners" or commonly referred to as C-Type ring spanner. There is a S-Type spanner also. A very useful tool in some situations.

Yes Mods Kindly do change appropriately.

Sudarshanjee, i have never seen the "Half moon" Spanner before and i thought you had done some of your famous DIY stuff on that when i saw your posted pic but seriously that is one hack of a useful tool to reach odd places. Though i have seen the "S" type as mentioned by Spikey.

Dear All ,
I have something to share here , while I was cleaning my Parts Room cum library- I stumbled over this. It was lying there without use for few years now as a winch & a highlift has taken its place . I thought sharing may be beneficial .

you can call it a recovery tool , I was using it for recovery of Jeep , it has a 4 feet long some 1" wide link chain , this thing can actually lift a bigger vehicle like Landy from one side ( have tried it )

I had bought it old , so dont know the exact specifications , I will service it & show a demo of its internals as well as use , but till then have a look

two special spanners one must have for brake pipe line work & diesel pipe line ( high pressure , Distributor pump to Nozzles )

General experience is those nuts get easily damaged if one uses the usual flat open spanners ( as any other spanner cant be used )

Yes these are used for all types of pipe joints. The best part is that if excessive force is used the opening will flare up and slip, thus preventing over tightening and thread slippage - a frustrating experience with pipe joints.

well I never knew this part , I didn't know they could be flare up , may be I haven't used excessive force .

What I experienced is these give enough grip around the nut , which is normally not achieved by the side spanner , thus avoiding damage .I always have them in the vehicle kit .

Sudarshan Bhai - do you know what is needed to tighten the inner nut of a FIP in a jeep engine (the nut between the FIP and Block) - my mech doesnt have a proper tool for it and just hammers with a screw driver!
