Tech Tues | High Lifter Snorkel Backlash Tool

Stubborn Snorkel Tube Nut Solution

If you are a mechanic, work at a dealership or are capable of rebuilding a transmission, High Lifter’s Snorkel Backlash Tool is for you.

Tech Tues | High Lifter Snorkel Backlash Tool

It is very difficult to loosen the snorkel tube nut, particularly when the nut is stuck or sticking due to debris or metal shavings from the transmission – this tool from High Lifter solves that problem.

There is currently no tool in a standard toolbox that removes the nut easily. This tool is designed by High Lifter to help you properly remove or tighten the snorkel gear tube when replacing or upgrading the front output/snorkel shaft and output/snorkel gear in the main gear case. It can also be used to check the backlash on the output/snorkel gear in Polaris transmissions. The High Lifter tool has specific applications.
