Clutch Tool

For some reason it seems like I have to adjust the clutch on my Panhead out on the road now and then to get the right "pedal feel". I used to haul around a stubby ratchet with an 11/16" socket and an allen wrench to adjust it. I hate having to carry a ton of shit so I thought of a great way to simplify this. I welded a 1/4" drive 7/32" socket into a 3/8" drive 11/16" socket. Then spun it clean on the lathe. Now I use the allen wrench to break the lock nut free and then use the same allen to adjust it. Once adjusted just reverse the procedure.
Easy peasy, and way less crap to drag around.
