I made a tool for that. It's nothing more than a piece of flat stock with the end properly radiused to fit that plug. I ground a corner to fit the top plug.

What you need is a Gen 1 balancer lever; if you happen to have kept that it will work.

A large washer will work, too, though you might need two if you use fender washers.

What you don't want to have is any slop. The tool has to fit the plug pretty well.

Whatever you use, it needs to have a radius of about 7/8". A couple three fender washers that are 1 3/4" in diameter would do nicely.
