Any know of a store bought tool, like a distributor with the gear off to prime a 460?
Thanks

I use a deep, thin wall 5/16" six point socket epoxied to a 6" extension.

I've got a store bought one a friend gave me a long time ago. No idea who made it but it's just a length of rod with the 5/16 hex formed in one end. Basically the same thing Randy described only one solid piece.

I checked this AM, Moroso still sells them, part #62220 for 351W/460, and 62210 for 302/FE

Meh, I just took the low buck approach & took the center shaft out of an old dizzy & used it to prime with a drill vs buying one.

you do not need a drill, any old speed/bent handle crank wrench works. zbob
