I have the tools as I've re-done a few CV joints but they are not expensive and are on the turn around rack by the counter at the NAPA store.

Interesting.  May still be a good way to go.  Here's a couple examples of those pliers from Napa.  Cheap, and not quite so cheap.  Might also be able to borrow them from an auto parts store with a deposit.  I borrowed a disc brake caliper tool set from my local O'Reilly Auto Parts store last month.  Just had to pay a deposit (retail value of the tool set) that I got back...

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I had to have two different kinds of pliers. I must have done OK for some of those vehicles were driven another 100K after I cleaned, re-packed and rebooted the CV joints on the half shafts.

These are a lot harder to get locked than first appears. I did my 359 and it took me about 10 tries with 2 different styles of pliers. That hood part doesn't snap over, instead it just raised up.

I had already promised my son in law that I'd do his 359 so next I'm going to try a needle-nosed vice grip. The CV tool seems good too.

When I used the needle nose vise grips putting on 2150 cylinder it only took 1 try.  Thats the trick to it IMO.
