Sharp corners on carb dont seem to cut those things & it takes nitro a month or more to turn them yellow & loose tention,brake cleaner dont melt them either.

I use 1 band but have seen people use up to 3,not sure why but what ever makes you feel good.
that was a new engine and was just showing how to install one butch .

hope it helps ,

Generally What I do with all of my cars is on the servo arm atach the spring then to a part of the car itself. generally there is a mechanical advantage when the servo arm is longer than needed for the throttle location and you can use the more outside holes for the spring.

Houston

So does the Band get wrapped around the top of the uni ball, then around the hsn? It's a little hard to see. I'm going shopping for some hair products tomorrow!

Gotcha, looks easy enough. Easy, inexpensive, quick fix, can't ask for much more

Thanks for the help

2 cars at the track tonight had power failures, 1 went poof almost instantly, the other I managed to save after a 150' run across the track with my trusty rag in hand. Both those guys were not running any kind of a return spring. After reading this thread I stopped at Walmart today and picked up those hair ties and they work like a charm. Not that I had any issues with my car, but after seeing what happened tonight it was a eye opener. The rag I walk around with was also another idea I picked up from Monty.

Thanx for sharing Monty
