lisle , which i believe is the same one as snap-on ?
i bought one , wit hwhat it costs to have them installed and the potential work involved in making it so the cam will spin i could have saved myself over 200 bucks by not buying one .

it does come in handy disassembling a block before going to the machine shop though . there again its way cheaper to let the shop knock them out .
