Excellent idea for a thread and a great read through. Lots of good ideas from the collective mind of you GTTalkers (as usual , go figure ).
I think everyone has the list pretty well covered but heres a few more (I dont think these were mentioned above)
A mirror on a stick comes in handy sometimes
Tapered steel punches to aid in aligning bolt holes
To go along with your jack for raising the tractor , wheel blocks or chocks for keeping the tractor in place
Dedicated oil drain pan
Funnels of various sizes
I have a couple big, old, non screw driving screwdrivers that I find work real well for an extended listening device. I think the steel shank and plastic handle transfers the sound a little better than the wood dowel does.
Not really a "Tool" and mentioned before by Troy, but another use for cardboard: keep some large pieces on hand too, they work great for throwing on the floor or ground before you lay down to look for that leak, I can slide around some pretty heavy stuff on the cement floor of the garage when sitting on a large piece of cardboard too.
Great idea for a thread, keep those ideas coming!!
