    Oil filter Disassembly - 16mm lock nut T handle wrench

    I am looking to pull apart my clutch tomorrow on my CL350 to sort out an ongoing issue with not being able to use a 5/16th #10 steel ball on the clutch lifter rod side as it's too large a diameter. It should fit, but doesn't, so something's amiss. I'm hoping to sort out the internals and have new EBC friction plates and springs, as well as a new OES pressure plate, 1x Clutch Plate A and 2x Clutch Plate B (out of a total of 7). I also have new OES springs as the EBC ones are a bit longer than stock (and hence supposed to be 10% stronger to prevent slip).

    I have to disassemble the oil filter as part of clutch removal. The workshop manual part 3.3.E (p. 36) mentions, after removing the right crankcase cover, oil filter circlip and filter cap, to "straighten the tongue of the spring washer pawls and remove the 16mm lock nut but using the T-handle lock nut wrench. The filter rotor can then be removed. (fig. 3-69).

    Do I require a specialty tool? Is that T wrench so special or can I use a normal 16mm socket on an extension from a regular ratchet set?

    Anything else I should be wary of as I go ahead? We're just hitting above freezing temperatures here so I'm trying to get everything done over the next week or so before the snow really starts to melt.

    Thanks in advance for any replies!
    Cheers, phaetn.

    Aha -- thanks so much for the link. It's clear from the images Jphoenix provided that it's a specialty tabbed tool.

    I just learned about this! I ordered my tool off ebay from these guys:

    Seller: ragingparts ( 34151 )
    Item title Price
    Shipping price
    Qty Item total
    Motion Pro Oil Filter & Clutch Hub Spanner Honda CB CT ( 270973317793 )

    Paid on Feb-19-13 $7.75 $4.95 1 $7.75

    Got very quick service and I managed to bust that nut loose although it did require my super sized cheater bar.

    plus a DR650, a Connie 14, an X6 on the shelf, a 77 Wing I need to sell, and a Bimota SB6R also for sale (-:

    Re: Oil filter Disassembly - 16mm lock nut T handle wrench

    On the CB360, does the retainer that the T-handle wrench engages with have a left-hand or right-hand thread?
    Thanks

    They are RHT....Left (CCW) is loose.....Right (CW) tightens.....
    There ARE folded locking tabs in your way that MUST be folded down (out of the way)....

    Thanks for that. Didn't know about the tabs. Sorta hard to unscrew it with the tabs "up and locked".

    Hi Guy's
    Do I need this tool for my CB350 as well?
    I am about to attempt my first oil change.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!
