It does look like a good kit....

but NPD sells one that make "Exact" crimps that Ford would have done...

I know...because I bought one... It's around $20 bucks... and it's just the "Special" pliers....no clamps..

I have both those types shown. The NPD version is better because it has a flat area that comes up to keep the crimp from getting cockeyed. Does a much better job.

Knipex. Some of the best pliers of all types. They got a model with a side jaw and a normal jaw.

I use the NPD tool. The anvil on the tool provides you with a "factory" looking crimp.....
which is what you're looking for if you're bothering to use Oetiker clamps.

I got those Kinpex plyers at www.leepowersteering.com Don't know if they have the side jaw or not. I think they were about $25.00 Much better than KRC wanted for them

I have a set with the mechanical anvil, which I purchased to install the clamps on CV joint boots. You had to use this style or the clamp wouldn't seal properly or could potentially catch something when spinning.
