Shimano crank install tool

I have a Shimano FC RS510 crank and need the tool for the nut on the non-drive side, anybody have a number?

Are you aware the "nut" you refer to is only to pre-load the bearings. It's only finger tight and is not for retention.
The tool is actually just flimsy plastic.

They're also about 3 dollars, so I don't really see the point of not having one if you own a Shimano crank.

Agree. It's the correct tool for the job, and it's so cheap it's just worth it to have one.
