Socket for TR3 Gear box drain plug


Country flag
Changing the oil on the TR3B I am working on for a friend and I had a time getting the drain and fill plug out. Must have been done up by a weightlifting champ.

Not having the square tool to get on the plugs I made one that I could get a socket on. Worked a treat. A little filing and welding.
