Tool to lock fan hub in raptor
Is there a tool to lock the fan hub in raptor in order to get the prop nut on tight ?

If yes than where can I buy it ?

if no, what is the most easy way to do it ? (I've been in raptortechnique.com)

Ricks has it, its called the OS crank lock tool.

Two old clutch bolts and a screw driver complete the task, don't go too hard or you can snap off the bolts (dont ask how I know that)

I use the toothbrush handle down the carb hole trick (after the carb is removed of course!). Works good for me, never caused any problems and it does not cut through the handle like you think it might.

I used to do the toothbrush thing, but now am a firm believer in the use of the proper cranklock tool.

I messed up an engine to the order of 70 bucks because I didn't have a 15 dollar tool.

In Rick's it said "OSMR1003 - CRANKSHAFT CLAMP 32 and 61 ... not 50 "

Are you sure it's ok for R50 ?

No, it's not OK. There's another one made for 32 and 50 size I believe.
