Again, I would go Kt but where you are living it would probably take a while either way.

Both Speedtech and KT are excelent shops and will help you know matter what. You can't go wrong with either.

those are actually fairly large like half the size a pack of cigeretts. plus you need extra wire to wrap around the RF choke. Ya might want to find something a bit smaller....

Ya, I can definently back you up on that one. I have ordered things from both of them: Great service, great prices, and very fast.

Stupid question, I know, but gotta ask anyway.

I need to do some diff maintenance and I think the thrust bearing is to blame for the chunky feeling in the diff. Everything else has been cleaned and reassembled. The diff rings were flipped over so they're good. I haven't replaced the balls, but the "chunkyness" only occurs when you spin the outdrive containing the thrust bearing, so...

Anyway, is there a way to remove the "hog ring" or c-clip that holds the washers and thrust bearing in the outdrive without a pair of hog ring pliers?

Anybody got a good way to do this?

Rob

Take some old body scissors and dremel them a bit so the the tips fit inside the holes of the clip, then compress the clip a bti and it pops right out. The body scissors will still work to an extent after you do this too!

I used a couple of body clips and then squeezed them with a pair of needle nose pliers to remove mine. This worked fine.

=MisFitz=Nuke,
Did you get your car yet? What's the status of the anodizing and how much $$$ is it going to cost?
Hit me back,
