Remove even the toughest flywheel gland nuts or frozen 36mm axle nuts with a 3/8 inch ratchet. Only 30 ft/lbs of torque applied to the CIP1 Torque Tool equals 270 ft/lbs. of torque at the gland nut. Kit includes Torque-tool & drum plate as well as both 6-volt & 12-volt flywheel gears.

This is what one of our customers had to say about this great tool....received 02/02/2003...
Hello- I just had to tell you people how happy I am after ordering the -torque meister- type tool that recently came up after a long absence. Such fast and accurate service after I ordered online. The price was the best since this tool had it all included. My 6v and 12v VW's are happier for it. I couldn't wait until I got home to try it out on a stubborn gland nut. I didn't want to bust my butt on this one- the future rebuild. I nearly teared up as I applied minimal force on the geared end. Uhhh! Instantly paid for itself!!! Dennis C.~ Mpls. MN


This tool is invaluable to anyone doing brake or engine work. The kit comes with all the parts needed to loosen the 12-1600cc engine flywheel 36mm gland nut or 36mm axle nuts on either 5 bolt 205mm or 4 bolt 130mm rear drums.

The ring gear section with the 4 holes in it is for attaching to the rear brake drum when loosening or tightening the rear axle nut. For wide 5 bolt pattern use the top set of holes and two stock lug nuts to attach the ring gear section to the drum. For 4 bolt pattern use the bottom holes and two stock lug nuts to attach to drum. Next attach the narrow toothed long gear shaft to the top of the 36mm lever shaft with shims on either side making sure, for drums, the gear is on the protruding side of the socket lever and secure with clip. Then slide the socket lever assembly onto the axle nut and mesh the gear shaft at the top to the ring gear section already attached to the drum. If loosening, any socket or wrench will work on the hex end of the gear shaft using the gear drive and the socket lever to loosen the nut. You may have to reapply the tool once you run out of teeth on the ring gear section.

For flywheels you have to reverse the drive shaft gear so the gear is on the flush side of the socket lever. Flywheels are either 12v or 6v so there are two different gears to accommodate this. The long gear with narrow teeth is 12v and the short gear with coarse teeth is for 6v.

**When tightening please use a proper torque wrench as this tool WILL over tighten bolts and breakage CAN and WILL occur**
25 ft lbs = 230 at the nut/bolt. 30ft lbs= 270 at the nut /bolt.

Works great!!!! December 3, 2015
Reviewer: Ryan Boyer from Shawnee, OK United States  
I fought to remove the axle nuts on my 74 Ghia. PB Blaster (2 cans), heat, two broken half inch breaker bars, two broken 3/4" to 1/2" adapters, bent holding bar and  lifted car off the jack stand. Finally ordered this tool and it took it right off with no issues!!
