Approach Aviation’s new Alternator Coupling Tool Kit is purpose-built to make it easy for mechanics to inspect this critical component and simplify coupling installation and removal.
The tool kit consists of a zinc-coated coupling spanner wrench and unique coupling gear socket with steel housing and aluminum gear engagement, designed to protect the steel coupling gear from damage during maintenance.
Together, these tools allow the coupling to be held in place (mounted on the alternator or free-standing) while the coupling gear slippage is checked with a calibrated 3/8” torque wrench (as specified in the engine maintenance manual).
*Torque wrench and alternator drive coupling not included
This tool is for elastometric couplings only. 2 lbs (1Kg) shipping weight.
