Perhaps you need to add the unobtainable 100SM option that modifies the strut for easy removal of the wrench.
That grouping of words seems so wrong for many reasons!!!
Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hate it when that happens. I think they're aluminium, so you can't fetch them with a magnetic pick-up tool.

And be very careful not to drop the little wrench down inside the front suspension strut like I did yesterday 😠

I don't have mine handy, but from memory:

The two black plastic rod-looking things go into the center of the vacuum pistons. In those go the 90-deg bent wires. With these you can see the pistons rise and fall, so as to even airflow. They also allow ballpark 1/32 piston lifts to check mixture.

The small brass plug-looking thing is a jet-centering tool that goes in place of a jet; very handy if you're doing a complete overhaul and replacing the jets.

By far the most useful tool is the small wrench that looks like the tool some people use to floss; it's the only way I can get to the jet adjusting nuts on my BN2. Any other tool--wrench, pliers, etc.--would be almost impossible to use with the carbs on the car.

All in all, a simple but useful collection of tools. Did I miss any?

I've always wondered:   what do each of those little tools in the tuning kit do?
