Another Addition to the Tool family

Hey Gents,

I was faced with a very frustrating situation last weekend when I was doing an oil change on one of our ride on mowers and noticed some weepage where the drain bung screws into the bottom of the engine. It's a typical design on one particular model of Husqvarna. The bung is 5cm long and  it's recessed on the bottom of the engine inward of the chassis plate on which the motor sits.

I was able to remove it by hand quite easily, as it was somewhat loose to the turn, but when trying to reinstall it with thread lock, I needed to be able to screw it deep enough for it to make a meaningful purchase and seal.

For the life of me, I just couldn't find the right socket to be able to reach the hex part of the drain bung, so I just had to hand tighten for the time being and during the course of mowing the lawn, I'd be keeping an eye on it to hoping it doesn't unscrew itself and dump the oil in the process.

What I was after was a 22mm deep socket, which I thought I had somewhere and then came to the realisation that I didn't. So off to ebay I went and purchased a deep socket air impact set and to my surprise the set arrived in two days, much to my relief.

This set is going to come in handy from now on I can tell you 😄
