I still have my Whitworth tools...

Seems some toolset makers are discovering that for some cases mm and in are very close (e.g. 3/4" and 19 mm) and just including one tool for both.

Am still looking for a 2 foot 18 mm wrench for the belt idler.

Oooph! New that'* Leverage!!!

I use a breaker bar(I think it'* 18") with an 18mm socket when I want to remove the belt from the tensioner.

I use a 3/8" socket with a big pipe to get the tensioner loose. I own an 18" long breaker bar, I just don't like getting out the sockets, the bar itself, all that ****.. when I usually have my 3/8" handy. Just laziness on my end, I guess.

Thanks for the advice and walkthrough guys. I got the new crank sensor on there today, and so far so good. I took it for an extended tour around the parking lot of my apartment complex and had no trouble. I'll keep you posted if things turn out poorly, but I got a good feeling about this one.
