You can buy a tool or make it yourself, 3" pipe 1" long and a 1/4'' X 1'' X 4'' plate with a 3/8" hole in the middle. Some weld the plate to the pipe but not mandatory.

LOTS of DIY designs here and on the web. I used stuff from the hardware store as shown, but did add a drilled piece of steel across the top of the ABS pipe cap to add stiffness...had my clutch apart twice and it worked OK.

Thank guys. So you are just using the sealed end of the cap to hold the pressure and it's working . . . cool.
