We are going to give the 540 an overhaul this winter with the help of the folks at Barrett. They will be doing all the inspection and any required fixing. We will be diong the disassembly and reassembly back home. I of course have the overhaul manual and parts list in hand, and the help of a few qualified A&P's for the critical stuff. None of us have any of the special tools at our disposal with the exception of the cylinder wrenches.

Does anyone have these tools available for rent or borrow? I've been told that many of them can be made easily and that others will just make the job a bit easier, but I'm sure there's giong to come a time when we just can't do with out some sort of Kniffler pin removal device or other expensive do dad. Thanks
