Where can you purchase Harley's tool HD-45324 ???

Does anyone know where Harley specific tools can be purchased? I'm looking for Harley's HD-45324 which is used to remove/unscrew the lid to the fuel tank - - I need to clean the sending unit rail. I've put the part number in at various online Harley dealers, but none seem to have the tool in their database. Thanks.

Try doing a search for fuel flange removal or some combination thereof.

I tried locating the part online also and didn't have any luck. I finally decided to give the trusty channel locks a try as per one of the forum members (Racinjason) suggestions. It takes a little elbow grease and a little care so you don't scratch anything or break the tabs off the cap but it is not too difficult. You can do a search for fuel flange channel locks and you should find the thread started by Racinjason it has good pics and all. If you have any further questions I can try to help... It was definitely worth the effort to clean the slide my gas gauge works great now.

there are some VERY detailed instructions around here somewhere for making your own tool out of a piece of pipe... search for it, I know it is around as I read it not too too long ago.

Thanks all, for your great input. If I can't get it through Kent-Moore at a reasonable price, I'll build one per instructions in the other thread.

I just did the fuel flange repair and cleaned the sending unit slide, I used a sears heavy duty strap wrench(19.95). I found that removing the inner rear fender extension, which protects the gas tank(two 10mm nuts under the seat) gives ample room to get the strap wrench in(going in from the rear tire) and have enough room to turn the retaining ring off. still a pain, but works.

I was wondering the same thing, mustangt. I personally do not have this tool as I made my own out of a pvc 6" drain cover. I like the fact that mine grabs all of the flanges on the ring, not just two. This is also true for the HD tool.
