About Us

Formerly Frank's Outboard Tools


Due to an increase in USPS Small Flat Rate shipping fees, Flat rate charges will now be $8 USD, for any amount of tools I can fit into one box.

Frank no longer produces these tools as I have taken over the job to make the tools. 

His site is no longer active and you have been redirected to my site.

Welcome, you can expect the same elite quality and service that Frank provided for years.

See the red banner at the top of the page, to see what all is available.


Background Info

I work full time as a Journeyman Toolmaker.  I have been machining since I left high school. That would have been 1984.  Shortly after my wife and I bought our lake home, I bought my first outboard.

After that purchase I did my research and I found the AOMCI, known as The Antique Outboard Motor Club Inc., found here: Absolutely the best place to get info about your old motors bar none.


I have always found a way to get the job done, but some jobs require the proper tools. That is where this story begins.  Frank Robb, a fellow AOMCI member, had been making reproduction service tools 

for the classic OMC's, 

    Well, Frank has decided to step away from that endeavor to pursue his "bucket" list. 

 When I found out Frank was stepping down, I offered to step up. I purchased his jigs, fixtures and prints and now  I will continue the tradition of excellence set before me. 

I, like Frank, do this in my spare time, as I have a full time day job. I will do my best to keep items in stock, and when not in stock, I will do my best to keep the wait time to a minimum. I promise to continue his legacy of top quality tools at reasonable cost.    


What will be offered

 Tools offered will include, upper crank shaft seal pullers, shown to the right, for 5-40 hp OMC motors.  These are ONLY for the upper crank shaft seal, NOT gear case seal pullers.

I have a list of seal pullers and which seal they pull listed on its own page, so check that out.

Timing tools, shown below, for the 3 hp thru 40 hp, to set the proper timing on each cylinder and to ensure both cylinders fire 180 degrees apart which is essential for best performance and smooth idle.  They also have their own page. There you will find a list of years and hp, but it is a list compiled by man so there may be mistakes. 

Fuel connector o-ring repair tool, shown above, to replace the old cracked o-rings for the pressure tank systems, again, it has its own page. 

Coil locating ring to set the proper gap between the coils and the magnets on the flywheel. 

I hope to add other tools as time and space permit.  


The details

  I will combine shipping whenever possible, especially on orders of more than one item.  All items shipped will have a tracking number.  I ship throughout the US and Canada for those across the border and I can also ship worldwide. If you are outside the US, let me know when you request tools so I can get you the proper shipping quote.
