On my triumphs,no .  But my tool box has several modified tools with
special purpose.   One is for removing the air filter from my TR2 -
shortened wrench as there is no other way I have found.

My great uncle - who's cars and tool box I inherited had several mystery
tools - bent, ground, shortend...  And over the years I've found a use for
each of them.   I feel very connected to him while working on the car and
with his special tools.
