The bent wrench is my favorite example of a homemade tool. I'm not kidding - it's our logo!

Make your own 1.8 crank bolt removal tool. Bolt circle is 53mm, if you prefer.

It's not perfectly perfect, and the 15" length and its precision are up to your discretion , but it works great.

yep- AFM on 87 190e 2.3-16 is underneath the fuel distributor between it and the cylinder head. I went with a 1/4" drive philips bit and a 1/4" gear wrench. Tight fit o-rings on each side of the bit held it in.
