piston locking tool? i would stay away from those. They will put alot of presure on your piston and con rod. What are you doing to use that tool? If it is a flywheel swap you should get a flywheel wrench. They work for2-4 shoe clutchse. I use an ofna one.

Easier to just remove the carb and stick in the end of a like pier handle which is usually the same size as the opening. Or just putting your flywheel in clamps.

Put a wrap of electical tape on each jaw of channel lock pliers. It wont damage the flywheel that way. Ive been doing that for years.

ya i remove mine with channel locks too. make sure the flywheel pins nestle into a groove on the channel lock on both side and apply pressure as needed...
