    Re: 96 XP WOT only 6350 RPM's

    You would eliminate the problem by reusing the good parts (i.e. rubber bellows and clamp) and using stainless steel safety wire like I suggested above. It's the cheapest and the easiest way to...

    Re: 96 XP WOT only 6350 RPM's

    I will have to find some pictures, but I used stainless steel safety wire to replace the carbon steel spring clip. I didn't tie the wire too tight, just enough to give good clamping pressure.
