injection pump dial indicator (?)

Postby 1982diesel » Sat Dec 12, 2015 12:24 am

I'm going to do a timing belt/h2o pump job soon and I want to buy or use a dial indicator. Any suggestions on where to buy/get one? Ideally I could also use it for my 1.6l NA VW diesel motor too...

See viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11904
It's a Kent Moore J-29763. I bought this same one but I missed this sale, and paid more like $50. I just Googled for them, and they're now listed at around $200 but generally "out of stock". I suspect they've been replaced by a newer model with a different number.

Oh man, I am looking for one of these right now and they are about $300 .... what the hell? I can't justify spending that much money for a single tool... there must be something else out there. Can I borrow someone's ?

You can buy a good dial indicator for $29 and anyone with a turning lathe can make the tool in about 20 minutes.
