cv joint spanner

I gather for looking that the spanner needed is a 54. Seen some on ebay but
apparently they don't have the part fro a torque wrench so are no good.
HWTHKE wants a snap on one but that's a bit expensive....
Any tips on where to buy a good specimen at an ok price in the uk?

Haven't seen any replies, everyone must have made the most of a nice day.
I think you are looking for the box spanner or thin wall socket. Snap On
would be a bit of a waste unless you are going to use it often. Not sure
where you could get them - I found one by chance in a clearance bin. With a
welder you can adapt a box spanner to fit a torque wrench.
If you going to do the CV joint yourselves a word of caution, I would
hesitate to suggest the CV / Knuckle rebuild should be tackled unless you
are quite experienced and prepared for the vehicle to be off the road for
some time if things don't go to plan. Perhaps see if Julian is able to do
it and teach you at the same time? It's worth getting to know the inside of
a LC knuckle joint.

There was someone in the club who was offering these 'tools' at ?25 - modded
for front and rears (the rears u have to have a slot cut in them) - cannot
remember his name - he now runs a 100 series - blew his front diff up going
up 'the hill' at the last ELCO day in March/Apil time - someone else will know
his name.

That would be Jon Wildsmith. I think his 100 will now stroll up that
hill!

pick up the postage.
