I read that the Rosewood tool treads into the cup and Clay's tool I think grabs the cup . Clays tool supposed to allow you to inspect the cup which doesn't damage it after removal. I would like to hear if anyone has used Clay's tool.

Rotunda is expensive.....I know!

Its a giant tap with a threaded end you attach a slide hammer, or your tool of choice to extract the old cups. Then the cup installer is a "dummy" injector shaped driver that you use to hammer the cup in with.

Also, the Rotunda kit includes a couple different wire brushes that you use to clean out the bores before you install the new cups.

Its the only tool I have any experience with....but it work great!

I think Robin (PaysonPSD) over at FTE used Clay's when he did his injector cups.

Drop him a PM.
