Pitch Guage
Ball link pliers
Nutdrivers <--purchase hardend ones
Screwdrivers <--purchase from a home supply store
Tach

(not all the tools or in any type of order)

You pick... I think you will get varied responses based upon the individuals tastes.

LOL a torch?
Sounds funny but I use it all the time to break the bond of red loctite, remove bearings from metal blocks, remove clutch linings,etc. They are very useful. Just to make sure you are thinking of a small butane torch and not a big propane torch...

The big propane torch works great for changing the bearings.
