So, I have one of these over priced gadgets but apparently I have more money than brains (which still isn't saying much at all) and can't figure out how it works. I know I need 17/64 throw on the accelerator pump but I'll be darned if I can line up that gauge in any way that measures that. How do I operate this thing?
I have me palm ready and waiting to smack my forehead if and when an answer is provided here.
Success here. The T109-117S is a nifty little gadget. It works as well as you showed that it would. I think what it did best, however, is demonstrate that those who simply bought the $0.99 machinist rule are just as well off and still have a pocket full of cash left.

Eureka! I‘m happy you succeeded and you are very correct. However I bought mine way back when they weren’t so popular and expensive. I got my two as parts of tool kits in Carter boxes and don’t think I paid over $25 for either tool kit. I do have a box full of gauges I’ll never use and probably never be able to sell.
Mine came in Carter box full of assorted tools as well....but I had to shell out more than $25.... Today was the first time I used any of them. I did very much like the flathead screwdrivers (perfect fit everywhere)and I also have one of those plug pullers and the indented rod to drive them back in with. In my particular kit there's a variety of non-Carter tools too - picks, forceps, and other random stuff. I think it's kind of neat that you can tell someone actually used this kit and added in little pieces here and there that helped them do their job. Yes, I'd much rather have an unused NOS tool kit but there's something amusing thinking back to how and where this kit may have been and who used it.

grumpy: No cherry pie thank you, but I will have COFFEE. Off to play in the mud again today, did I mention I HATE MUD, REALLY REALLY HATE MUD. Mud chains are heavy, I dislike chaining up laying in the mud, I f-ing hate mud. Muley likes mud more than me.
