I placed and order for the oil line remover/replacement and primary locker tools through a dealer over the net a couple of days ago. They wrote me back saying the tools are for dealers only so he'll try Jims instead. WTF!? When did tools become "dealer only", am I getting shafted or what?
Assuming I can't get the tools, what can I do to remove and reinstall the stock oil lines to the oil tank? The primary locker is easy enough to make.
Any help with ideas or where I can buy the oil line tool.

Try the VTF Sponsor, George's Garage. THey have a lot of those specialty tools.

The H-D tools, are not so much "dealer only" as that they aren't carried as H-D parts (hence the different numbering scheme). They are usually Kent Moore Tools, and not cheap.

I tried looking on the kent-moore site, no luck. A co-worker told me about SPX Kent-Moore, a specialty tool section of the company. Only problem is there isn't a searchable website.
I found the Jims tool at denniskirk.com from another VTF thread.

I ran into the same thing locally - a dealer told me the primary locking tool was a "dealer only" item and not for sale to the public.

Bought it from George's Garage. Fast, friendly service. Costless too.

Call Jenni @ Benji's

I bought the primary locking tool from Jenni at Benji's, 304-523-1340. She will get you anything you want. I try Jim's or Georges first, then go to the special HD tool if there is noting else available.

WTF are you guys talking about? What kind of oil line requires a special tool? A primary locking tool is a hard wood wedge, for Christ's sake.

I'm just going off of what the manual says. The oil line tool fits around the line and goes inside the connection to push back the tabs inside. If a generic oil line tool will work, I'll go with that. Anybody know?
