i will wait til u get your cam back as well.
Hebiki where can i buy teflon? and what brand (if they come in brands).. i am a total newb at this.
After posting I was thinking of an easier way than I suggested...Here is what I came up with.
Take an old screw driver that is small in diameter bend a 90* angle on the tip granted it is hard to do on the exact tip but do it a little down from it.
Once you got it belt just right. Take a dremel and a cutting wheel and sever off all but about 1/4" then snad to take off any sharp edges. Now you can pull at least one side then rotate to the other side....That way you are not damaging your seals.
hope this helps,
I tried it yesterday it works almost as well as teh C-CLip thing....but heck of alot cheaper too.
