How many spanners have you droped so far ;)
what you need is the little tool that's in the photo. I have done a
sketch of the shape so you get the idea of what it looks like. Also a photo of
the one for doing the inlet tappits - just for referance for those that
haven't seen one before so you know what to look for at the next military
auto jumble. I had the same problem when the first time I adjusted the
tappets on my Saracen. Trying to work upside down with 3 spanners
tied to string is not easy.
