    Where is the best place to buy the test plates for vacuum/pressure testing the 372xp?

    Actually I do have one more question. What tool works for removing the flywheels on the modern husqvarna's? I found two flywheel removal tools and I am not coming up with what they work on. Just says coarse or fine thread.

    Plastic head hammer for the same reason you use brass. Even with a puller, you need to rap it with a hammer most of the time anyway.

    You don't really need test plates....just use the muffler and the carb....you DO need some rubber. I use old inner tube. Some thicker stuff than bicycle rubber is nice.

    If you know anyone with a 3d printer you can print plates :)

    I like having tools too... but I'm not sure $23+ ship for a blocking plate is worth it to me. To each his own.

    I bought some 1/16" thick silicon rubber from M-C. 12x12 sheet for 12 dollars. I've almost used it all up and have made 8 different block offs fully customized for different machines variances.
