That's the one. I was hoping someone else had bought that tool that you would likely only use once then lose it in the garage and would let me rent it so I don't have to buy it to use only once and lose in the garage.

just letting you know there are two different ones . the chevy unit uses one that looks like a ball joint socket with 4 prongs but bigger. thats if you have the harmonic balancer .

How many of these things are you going to build?

If you are only going to do ONE, I think you are better off to just split the nut with a chisel, and be done with it.

You will want to buy the improved 5th gear retaining nut kit anyway, especially for a Dodge tranny, so you wouldn't re-use the original.

For some reason I've done about 12 of these things, and still don't have that socket. But if I were going to dump money on NV4500 tools, the first thing I would buy is a rear tapered roller bearing puller. I've had a few that were slip fit, but I've had a GM 2WD one that was a tight press fit. That was a nightmare...
