I received these various tools from my grandfather's garage, but honestly I'm not exactly sure what they do, and he wasn't there to tell me.

I was wondering if you guys with more experience than me can tell me what these are and what I might use them for.



A - may be a part of B (not sure) which is I believe a puller of some sort, but would this generic puller be of use in any specific auto application that might come up on my fronty for example?

C - I believe this is something for tubing (brake / brass lines) I'm guessing, but I don't believe its a tubing bender.

D - I was thinking originally it was a puller of some sort, but (light bulb just went off) maybe a flare tool be used with C to make ends for brake lines?

Thanks!

C and D together are a flaring tool for tubing as you suspect. I would say that the 6 round pieces with B also are part of the flaring tool, for doing inverted flare for brake lines. The rest of B is a puller. I don't know what A is.

A

I believe to be part of a puller, but you're missing a few parts.

D & C

Go together along with the bottom 3 pieces of B. They are used to flare tubing. Like brake and fuel lines.

The top right 3 parts I'm not to sure of. Could be the missing parts of C and D, but can't see them well enough.

The left 2 parts of B are a puller minus the bolts that would slide through the slots and screw into bolt holes on object to be removed. i.e. a harmonic balancer.

A and the threaded rod and plate with B are a steering wheel puller. The other bits with B go with C and D to make up a flaring tool kit for brake lines. You will need the appropriate bolts to thread into the steering wheel to go with the puller.

A looks like part of a puller of sorts, B looks like part of a slide hammer.

Builder is correct. A is part of a steering wheel puller, missing the center through bolt to collapse the clock spring/horn ring. Can also be used for some other light duty pulling applications.

B is a harmonic balancer/steering wheel puller minus the various bolts. I can't tell how big it is from the pic. The smaller ones are steering wheel pullers with some other uses. The larger version is a balancer puller. They have the same shape, just different sizes. The top 3 pucks are actually puller seats that go over crank snouts and various other shaft noses so the plunger bolt doesn't f up the shaft/threads.

C and D, along with the lower 3 pucks are a tubing flare tool. Some of those pucks should have one side for standard fuel line flares and an inverted side for the double brake line flare.

A looks like part of a puller of sorts, B looks like part of a slide hammer.

Yes, many of these can also be used with a slide hammer.

Thank you all for the information! This helps a lot. I found later (in a properly labeled Huggies Diaper Wipes box :)) some bolts that look to be used with the puller like Builder mentioned (G), and some strange looking items (F) (almost looks like a spark plug socket with a bolt through it), and a bolt and bracket (E) which looks like it might go with A in the previous picture.



Appreciate the help, I'll hang on to these items, they don't take up much room.
