The tool is packaged in a molded plastic, not a case just a disposable plastic used for the sale of the item. There is no mold in the plastic for an extension bar. I will call them tomorrow and tell them what they are selling is misleading and I am not very pleased about it. The snap on tool I purchased does come with an extension bar but the main bar is long enough to reach all the way through to the #5 bearing and still have like 6 or 8 inches sticking out the front of the block. The extension bar must be for big blocks maybe? I think for a hundred bucks it was a good investment. My machine shop charges 25 bucks to install all 5 bearings. So I have four more engines to build before I start saving money with it.
The extension bar with the snap on tool is for inline sixes . You knew that , it just slipped your mind from having small block on the brain . LOL
