Worn-in or jammed piston pins are a horror. With the extractor you simply avoid the danger of accidentally knocking the connecting rod of your crankshaft crookedly.

Removal tool for piston pins

This ingenious tool makes dismantling the piston pin a lot easier. This tool is worth gold, especially for vehicles that are only easily accessible from one side. An example is the Vespa PX, where the distance between frame and cylinder is very narrow and working with pliers is almost impossible. But even with an engine lying on the workbench, a tightly fitting piston pin is often a problem. If you want to drive this out, the connecting rod and piston must be supported in order not to exert any forces on the connecting rod bearings and / or the thrust washers.
The Buzzetti tool solves this problem by supporting itself on the piston and pulling the bolt out via a suitable conical insert with an internal thread. The whole thing is similar to simply unscrewing a screw, so it is extremely simple and still very efficient. In this way, damage to the crank drive can be avoided from the outset and removal is greatly simplified.

The cone inserts are included in the following diameters:
Ø = 13,15,16,19,22mm

Even Martin Cook from Chiselspeed (GB) called it his favorite tool in Scootering Magazine 308!
