SP Tools developed the Fan Clutch Wrench Set with Rack, No. 62020, for Chrysler, Ford, GM, Land Rover and Mazda vehicles, especially for bolt-on pulleys. This two-piece set does 98 percent of the applications of the 10-piece or combination fan clutch wrench sets. Use for removal and installation of the viscous fan clutch; just reverse tool on bolt heads.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Simplified two-wrench design including the patented Pulley Holding Tool and a precision double-ended 36 mm/48 mm wrench.
There were three bench marks for SP Tools in the development of No. 62020: component reduction, organization and ease of use.
Component reduction: For years, SP Tools had a series of five fan clutch wrenches that covered most of the bolted-on water-pump pulleys. Other manufacturers on the market had 10-piece sets in a blow-molded box that covered the same applications. The end-user needed to know the make of the vehicle, model, engine size and year to identify the wrenches needed.
SP Tools thought that mobile dealers and technicians would prefer a set of fan clutch wrenches more universal in nature. After a year of development, SP Tools achieved a professional-level answer to the multi-wrench sets: Develop two wrenches to cover most tasks and, subsequently, reduce the price to the end-user.
SP’s engineering department studied the multitude of bolted-on water pumps available on the market and designed a single universal water-pump holding tool, No. 61600; when coupled with the 36 mm/48 mm fan-clutch wrench, No. 95210, the two pieces replace all the 10-piece sets on the market for substantial savings and a reduced number of tools needed to remove/replace fan clutches in many vehicle makes and models.
Organization: The company thought a display for the tools would be beneficial not only as a space-saving display rack for the mobile tool dealer’s truck, where the rack can be placed on a shelf or attached to a wall, but the tech can use the display rack as a storage rack to keep the wrenches close at hand.
Ease of use: The display includes a quick reference guide enabling the mobile dealer or technician to quickly identify which wrenches are needed to do a particular job. With the guide, knowing what make, size, year or configuration of engine needing service is eliminated. The quick reference guide is simple to use; looking up the required wrench saves time and the mobile dealer can provide the correct wrenches to the technician with little effort.
Additional applications: In addition to the two-piece universal fan clutch wrench set that covers 98 percent of vehicles, SP Tools has added water pump pulley-holding tools that help in servicing fan clutch wrench applications that utilize the newer pressed-on water pump pulleys.
Designed and engineered in the USA, utilizing domestic and foreign components.
• Only two wrenches needed for 98 percent of domestic applications with bolted-on water pump fan clutches vs. the 10-piece sets available.
• Convenient display/storage rack saves space and keeps fan clutch wrenches close at hand, with space for additional fan clutch wrenches for additional applications.
• Includes a quick reference guide to rapidly identify what wrenches are needed for a particular job.
The No. 62020 Fan Clutch Wrench Set is great for mobile dealer point-of-purchase displays, and convenient storage for various fan-clutch wrenches in a technician’s toolbox.
