AK-50 air compressor removal tool set
Waterjet cut, welded, normalized, heat treated and plated, these two wrenches are faithul to the original Russian dimensions and materials.
Only those who have wasted a day on this task using the wrong tools will appreciate the right ones.
Five nuts and washers yield to the long curved tool with ease, but unless you have this short wrench, you'll be spending a lot longer than necessary on the sixth.
(If it's your first time tackling the job, we recommend removing the section of the exhaust that includes the heater muff, followed by the sheet metal blast duct which guides cold air onto the head of the compressor. Might seem like wasted effort until you have freed the compressor and need to maneuver it for removal or to get at that sheared coupling. )
And, if you've already attempted the job without the correct tools, you'll know that taking these six nuts off, was only half the fun.
