    Ok, I’m completely stumped on this one. It came out of a tool box from a long time Chrysler mechanic. It is about 8 inches long, but weighs close to 10 lbs. There are numbers on it, but nothing shows up with a web search. Any ideas??

    This is a somewhat wild guess, but there is a special tool that goes over the steering shaft to set the upper bearing. I used a stack of large washers about that thickness to set mine. I will have to check the manual for the tool number.

    It would make a nice slide hammer though

    It looks familiar, but I think part of it is missing. I seem to recall a tool like that that had another handle with a collar that goes inside of that. A/C clutch tool? but then again I might be out in left field too.....

    Slide hammer of sorts is what I thought. I’ll have to check the box again and see if there is something that fits with it, thanks!

    But the subsequent pictures showed that it was a tad too large...

    It's to install a rope seal. You put the rope seal in the cup of the bearing retainer and tap it down with a hammer to seat the seal in properly.

    I took a look at what was in the box and found some associated parts, at least they fit together. A slide weight of some sort but I still haven't a clue.

    Hmmm, I’m going to have to grab a loose bearing cap and check if it fits....

    Here's the closest I can find: Chrysler tool #C-3511. I found it referenced in an old FSM in the engine section under "installing oil seals".

    I always love it when somebody provides documentation to back up the answer. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Now my question is.... How did you know that, Bulldog? :lol:

    And lastly shouldn't that be "installing bearings" rather than "seals"?

    I think it is referring to the rear main seal.

    Rear main seals used to be rope and had to "beat" into the block and the cap. If you didn't do it exactly right, it would leak. If you installed them perfectly, they would still leak, only slowly. PITA
