A BMW motorrad shop is closing down close to me, so I picked up some old tools this morning. Could identify the valve compressor clamps, but not the others. Any suggestions what these tools are used for, whether it is complete etc.

I couldn't name any of

I couldn't name any of them...Roland has a list of tools in the back of his book, but none seem to match what you have.

Edit: Picture #4 might be an engine tool (535) for pressing the timing gear or sprocket onto the crankshaft. Application seemed to be from R24 all the way to the R75/5.

11263U

Thanks Kurt, I suppose these tools are probably not resricted to one era and could span from the 50's to 80's - and be specific tools for several models. Picture 4 carries the number stamp 11263U

Do you suppose that's 112630?

Do you suppose that's 112630? From the PDF file I found this on, it says further "(in conjuntion with 5038/1 and 5040). Use 88 88 6 112 630."

I gather that the mechanics probably referred to their parts with the 88 88 numbering scheme, but you can't look those parts up in the system.

Kurt it could be. Going back to this garage on the weekend to see if I can find anything else. Maybe I can speak to someone which can provide more info.

second row second photo is a depth gauge for setting up the rear drive shims ...or the gear box..... or any place where a depth gauge is needed, the next two are of a machinists scribing block used for a variety of things from clocking up a 4 jaw chuck to marking out a job or even holding a dial gauge

Morning all, Newbie here. New

Morning all, Newbie here.

New but I'm a toolmaker and tinkerer.

The C Clamp thing is a valve spring compressor. The Y tip fits over the spring cap while the threaded end (missing a foot) presses on the top of the valve. Screw down, spring compresses, remover the retainers.

4th picture is a bearing/bushing remover. The threaded end goes into or through the bushing, nut the other end. The T handle winds down pressing on the surrounding metal and pulls the bearing out.

5th photo looks like a brake line flaring tool, there should be a conical fitting at the end of the threaded rod. Clamp the tubing in the (missing) holder that lies between the U legs that has a female cone, wind the threaded rod down and you swage a flare on the end of the tubing. Rules say you have to do this at least once before realizing you FORGOT to put the brass fitting on first. =~)

As Peter Gibbs suggested, the last are of an adjustable non-magnetic base used to hold a scriber or last word indicator, 1,001 uses.

Thanks for being here, you guys are a wealth of information.

Dan
