Spring clamp styles and availability


Guest Anonymous

I recently observed someone working on Mercedes and Porsches who was using two spring clamps that looked very well thought out in that they resembled the OEM 02 screw type jacks except with two "C" perches. I have no idea how strong these tools are but they sure looked easy to use and were self contained in that they did not require the use of wrenches or compressors. I asked where mechanic got the tools and he said they were hand built. I know I have seen something like this before and maybe even on this board, but I just can't find them. Anyone?

Thanks

I have two of those made by "Hans Schubert Car Tools". The same makers as the Tii tune up/adjustment tool sets, and windshield install tools. I had positive comments when I used mine except it happens to be a BMW special tool. I was told by BMW they are NLA. When you have the strut is removed, the upper "c" portion locks the strut bearing from dislodging. Very safe operation. I have a new one available. Pics later.

Was the tool actually made from a screw jack? If it is the same, it sure seems much simpler (and maybe safer) than the clumsy clamps I have been struggling with!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
