This may be a little out-in-left-field, but when it comes to doing some rather odd tasks, it is very hard to beat an air impact wrench....

Assuming that you have some sort of air compressor, an impact wrench can be a really cheap and useful addition to the tool-treasure-trove.... this tool was used to make really easy work of loosening the wet-clutch bolts on the XS650... a job that is otherwise hard to do without blocking the clutch plates with special clutch-retianing tools, etc.

Voici the impact Phillips:

Works a treat, as they say in jolly ole inglaterre....
XS650 becomes a VT BackRoadRunner

I love projects that take twice as much effort as should be needed. Should be an Airhead motto. (disston)
