Gentlemen, I have many tools available for Rolls and Bentley cars. These are bespoke tools; some of them I try to keep in stock, some are made to order. Turnaround is ususally under a week. They are made almost exclusively of stainless alloys.

Here is the brake pump socket appropriate for all SY and SZ cars. $80

This socket removes the castle nut on the crank snout for Clouds, Shadows and Spirit/Spurs. $80

This socket removes the upper balljoint nut on SY's and SZ's. $80

This 2" socket removes the lower front balljoint on SY's and SZ's. $90

Here is the puller for extracting the hub off the crank for Clouds, Shadows and Spirit/Spurs. The threaded shaft is B7 steel and includes new Grade 8 hardware. $80 (or $55 if bought with either rear hub puller. They take the same threaded shaft)

crank hub puller2
crank hub puller3


This style of rear hub yoke puller is for SY's with Detroit Pots. This can be used on or off the car. $80 or $55 if you get the Crank Hub Puller as well.

Detroit Pot Yoke Puller2



This is the appropriate puller to use on Spirit/Spurs with Lobro rear drives. Includes Metric Grade 10.9 hardware. $80 (or $55 blah, blah).

If you are rebuilding your engine, you will need this socket to remove the left hand thread oil flinger retention nut. $90.
Oil Flinger socket
Oil Flinger socket2


I've made an economical front spring compressor for SY's and SZ's This comes with all new grade 8 hardware and bearings. I can provide the 4 lengths of 27" 3/8"-16 or 10mm all-thread but mailing the threaded rod makes the shipping costs exorbitant. If you can source it locally, it'll save you money. $150 (sans all-thread).

spring compressor 2
spring compressor 3
spring compressor 4
spring compressor 5
spring compressor 6

This pair of sockets removes the subframe mounts on SY's and SZ's. $150/pr.

I made a run these ram wrenches but I only have one left. It fits the teeth on the ram very precisely so if you've already taken an air hammer to your rams, you'll need to get cozy in the boot and fix things first. This will allow you to use ridiculous force to break free even the stickiest of rams. $120

A word in regards to shipping. I charge only exact shippping costs. Several small tools can fit in a Small USPS Flat Rate Priority Box and ship in the US for $6.80. The Oil Flinger socket, the lower balljoint socket and the spring compressor can fit in a Medium Flat Rate Priority Box for $13.45 and the Ram Wrench can ship in a Large Flat Rate Priority Box for $18.75 or sandwiched between cardboard and shipped First Class for $11.00.
International shipping charges differ, but Small Flat Rate Priority Box charges are usually $34.95. They can ship slower for less money in a regular box.
Bigger parcels are usually best shipped First Class Package International Service and charged by weight.
I shipped one wrench sandwiched between cardboard to Australia for around $22.
This is all as a reference - Please contact me for an exact shipping quote.

Kelly,

Where were you when I needed these tools when working on DRH14434??? I expect Bill Coburn will endorse this as well.

Your prices are incredibly affordable for tools of this quality and the tools are indispensable for anyone undertaking ongoing DIY maintenance of Shadows and later derivatives. My only reservation concerns the rear hub puller as I doubt it would have removed the recalcitrant hubs on DRH14434 which had corroded during its early life in Northern England due to road de-icing salt penetrating the tapered seat - I made a similar style of puller which did not work, I purchased a 20 ton hydraulic press which also did not work and eventually had to revert to a 200 ton hydraulic press in a mining workshop to separate the yoke and half-shaft.

Well done mate and a special thanks for thinking of all of us and making your tools available for our benefit.

David,
Wow! A 200 ton press?! Those were stuck indeed.
The original final drive hub yokes came off of SRE24700 with one of my pullers with no trauma or drama, but my car had very little evidence of corrosion.
I would think that some heat, penetrating oil, tension and time would release even the stuckest (I'm pretty sure that's a word), of yokes but they are put on with a nut tightened to 500 ft. lbs. Add 40 to 50 years plus ice and salt and one may be in for quite an adventure.
My tools are 100% guaranteed though and I have a many questions asked money back policy .

BTW, I can be anyone's personal machinist. Do you need a special fastener or a spacer? Do you have an idea for something made from scratch or need something copied? Perhaps you need a bore sleeved? Has a vandal tried to remove your antenna bezel with a hammer and screwdriver or vise grips? I can make you a new one from polished stainless and make the socket to install it.

Kelly,

. . . or should I say Pandora, you've now opened a box o' potential work for yourself.

These tools are, indeed, spectacular and it's actually nice to know that we have an accomplished machinist who's also a RR enthusiast who's also not trying to charge the price of one's firstborn (if one has one) for straightforward one-off (or kinda one-off) work.

Kudos to you and many blessings on your house!!

Magnificent is not good enough to describe these beautifully made tools Kelly.
Amazing quality and they sure would make a great display one anyone's shadow board.

Kelly.
Do you make a grease gun adaptor for the SY cars?
I have an Alemite adaptor for my 25 Chev, but no adaptor for the Shadow.

Patrick, I think the topic started by our good friend Vladimir titled "Camargue/Shadow Front Suspension" discusses the adaptor you're looking for. McMaster-Carr sells them here:

Patrick,

The "slip-on" grease gun connections for the Shadow button nipples are available from Blackwoods and also Repco can get them in for you.

https://www.blackwoods.com.au/part/05333352/coupler-grease-gun-butt-pull-on-14506

MacNaught used to make a farm kit of connectors for use with their Minilube grease guns which included the slip-on connector but it is no longer in their catalogue

Download the RR & Bentley Parts, Repair, Restoration & Other Resources Compilation and search for "Grease Gun Coupler/Adapter for Cloud/S & Shadow/T Series and Derivatives". I've got a number of different sources and a couple of different styles for this grease gun adapter listed (including the two offered here, just added).

Kelly can you sell me a cylinder liner puller for my Camargue JRH 23682 and also list which tools in your photos that can be used on a 76-77 Camargue. When people use terms like SZ I remain confused as I am anti acrimones and can't fathom abreiviations. Thank Vladimir

Vladimir,

I, too, am generally anti-acronym, particularly cryptic ones. However, since one would have to write "Silver Shadow and Derivatives" for "SY," and "Silver Spirit and Derivatives" for "SZ" I learned both and to love both.

Kelly can answer definitively, but I think that every tool he's shown can be used on either SY1 (pre-two-series cars) and SY2 (1977-1980 Silver Shadows II, T2s, and derivatives) cars. I generally only use SY2 of the "digit versions" since virtually anything I know of from the original SY cars carries over to the SY2 cars from a tools perspective. With no digit it simply means anything in the Shadow Series production era.

Kelly give me a price on all the tools above together including the cylinder liner puller sea freight and ups freight to Bowen Queensland Australia and email me details of any other tools you have made. Also if you get sick of the Rolls you have been restoring then I would like to know your selling price on that too. complexengineyahoo.com.au

Vladimir, I find acronyms acrimonious as well and I should have know better. All of the tools above are compatible with your Camargue. The exception is the final drive yoke puller. I make two different styles and I'm relatively certain your car has Detroit Pots. That would be the first yoke puller listed above with brilliant red door in the background (leftover paint from my Camaro). Later Spirits, Spurs and derivatives use the Lobro style puller.
As it so happens, I am currently making a liner puller compatible with blocks that have the head studs intact - very similar in style to the factory unit. If anyone looks up the post where I provided crude drawings and pics of the liner puller I used on SRE24700, you'll see that the studs were removed from that block first. I do not recommend removing the head studs - that way lies madness.
I'll contact you Vladimir and work out the details.

Having made a liner puller for Vladimir, I now have a finalized design and offer it here for your consideration.
Here is my block with one liner installed and one set of studs:
block mock-up

This is a hard anodized aluminum alignment tool used to make sure the liner doesn't get caught on the upper tube while being withdrawn. I made the bore of the upper tube as small as possible to maximize the wall thickness:
alignment tool

Place the bottom plate in position noting that there is a chamfered edge to clear any obstructions:
bottom plate

Screw in the 5/8"-18 threaded rod and lock it into place with the large washer and grade 8 nut. You'll want to keep the threaded rod from rotating and sawing away at the threads in the bottom plate. Finger tight is probably adequate. All motion takes place topside:
bottom plate with threaded rod

Drop the upper tube over the alignment tool:

Install the top plate, a large washer and the first hardened bearing washer:
top plate

Then the radial bearing:

The top bearing thrust washer:
top bearing washer

Top stainless washer:

And finally the large hex nut:
hex nut

After following the extraction instructions, here is a withdrawn liner assembly:
withdrawn liner

Here is the whole kit. I tried to find the worst possible background for a photo. I think I nailed it:
whole kit

This extractor is $220. It can ship inside the US for $18.75 in a USPS Priority Large Flat Rate Box or almost any international destination for $96.
International flat rate shipping is capped at 20 pounds and this kit weighs about 13 so a few other items could be shipped in the same box for no extra charge.

Kelly,

Another design triumph!!

It really is a testament to your attention to detail, and your experience with having done this work, that you design things that allow many tasks to be done with the absolute minimum of disturbance to surrounding items. The exterior channels on the puller body that allow the studs to stay in place is a perfect example.

Am I correct in assuming you painted this in a hammered finish? It looks like it is, but I could be mistaken.

Bravo!!

Brian

Brian, my wife wants you to knock it off. My big head is damaging the door frames.
I can't take too much credit for the puller design, I've seen pictures of the factory tool with similar cut-outs and I copied that idea.
These items are made out of carbon steel so I put a paint job on them to keep them from rusting. It is indeed a hammered finish - good eye!

Patrick, my wife would have words with you too.
I work on the Shadow every day. Right now I am futzing around with the body work and the engine rebuild at the same. There is also a home remodel and a landscaping project being undertaken. And when am I going to find time to catch up on Game of Thrones?

We will show her the correct path.

Maybe we should all come to your place instead of Amsterdam so we can do a working bee and get all your home stuff done.

Hi Kelly
I need a brake pump extractor and having seen your work first hand you are the only person to go to, superb tool expertly made.

I'm in the UK do you have one in stock and do you have any idea how much it would cost including an estimate of postage?

Thank you Carole

Thanks to the beneficence of the Dick Frawley estate and the intercedence on my behalf by David Trapp II, I was allowed to copy the Front Road Spring Compressor Tool - RH195. This tool is appropriate for all Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds and S series Bentleys.

The parts for this tool are made from premium materials. The threaded shaft is Grade 8, the hook end is constructed from 4140 chrome-moly and the rest of the parts are from stainless alloys and other high-strength steels.

Kelly,

Congrats on adding another useful tool to your line!!

I believe you're still a member of the RROC-US and I know that they had suspended the tool loan program back in 2010 and I don't think it's ever been revived. You had ought to make inquiries to the technical chairman to see if loans could be arranged to you for the purpose of duplication.

Your machining of these tools really is presenting a once in a lifetime (or several lifetimes) opportunity to get more of these things made to allow for ongoing maintenance of these cars. Since that's supposed to be one of the main goals of said club I would hope that attempts to recreate some now very rare tools would be met with great enthusiasm and willing cooperation. (Yes, I know, I sometimes indulge in excessive optimism, rare though that is.)

Brian, that is a good idea. I have an ad appearing in the next Flying Lady, so I have to assume that somebody there has seen my site. Besides that, I have had no official contact with them. I will rectify that ASAP. My goal is to offer every tool for every car.
Jeff, the site is only a little more than 3 months old. Can't blame you for not seeing it yet.
Mark, thanks for the kind words. I'm pretty sure you need another S2.

Here is what has been going on lately at BTW.
Pursuant to my (optimistic) goal of offering all tools for all cars, I've recently added SZ brake pump adapter wrenches to my site:
SZ brake pump adapter wrench
SZ brake pump adapter wrench in situ

I've also added several SY/SZ hydraulic test gages at different price/option points:
Hydraulic test gage 1
Hydraulic test gage 2
Hydraulic test gage 3

But the biggest news is that professional accumulator assembly/disassembly tools are available once again!
accumulator fixture
This fixture is probably too expensive for the casual DIY Rolls owner, but it will be indispensable for a shop that services Rolls.
The prototype for this fixture easily withstood 4500ft/lbs. of torque that a rusty accumulator needed to break loose (Two 200 lb men push/pulling on a 12ft. pipe).

I've also recently added Dummy Town Caps:
Dummy cap 1
Dummy cap 2

...and in case you missed the post from a few months ago, stainless caliper pistons for Shadows are available for cheap:

Kelly...
Those angle brackets on the accumulator tool are exactly what I was visualizing earlier this evening for badge and mirror mounting purposes on the "just out of storage" Phantom II. It may take me a while to make some conceptual drawings and photos but will forward them to you when ready. Hope you'll be willing to assist in such a "one off" project. The angst has been where to attach them and how without drilling holes, but I think I have some ideas.
