crankshaft locking tool PN 529035617

I have not been able to locate this crankshaft locking tool in the BRP Canada parts list nor on Amazon.ca
But it seems like an easy job to make one up on my lathe using a high grade bolt. I would need the precise dimensions of the round tip that inserts in the crankshaft to proceed with the project. If anyone has this tool and would measure the diameter of the round tip for me with a .001'' caliper or micrometer I would be eternally grateful. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Chief,
I saw that one but by the time it is converted to Canadian funds and shipping is added it gets expensive
Would be so easy to make my own if I had the tip diameter.

Nothing in particular. I just want to have the tool on hand in case it comes in handy. Plus it gives me a little project for the lathe.
Chances are I might never need it but the idea of finding TDC using that tool is appealing.
I have serviced the one way bearing twice now using a block of wood to hold the clutch. But using this tool is also an option for holding the primary clutch when removing the outer sheave.

I already have the secondary spreader bolt and a clutch holding tool.
The objective of my request was to see if anyone could give me the dimension of the tip of the tool mentioned in the title of this thread.
I appreciate people trying to help but all I need for now is just that dimension.

My shop manual shows where, when and how to use this tool. I would expect the tip to be a close fit in the 'hole' of the crankshaft. Logically it only needs to be finger tight and I would certainly avoid putting any radial torque on the crankshaft.
Using this tool to 'hold' the crankshaft is an option but I agree that it is not the preferred or most practical way to accomplish that for normal servicing of the CVT.

but torquing the fly wheel has a lot of torque.
I misunderstood your point the first time maybe.
If you are saying that here is a danger of deforming or shearing the tip of this tool when removing or installing something that puts very high torque on the crankshaft then yes my sphincter would pucker too.
