OK, well you need to try 'pressing' the shaft back in the casing. (although it shouldn't be THAT hard.) Either way, beating it with a hammer is not a good idea.[/b][/quote]Originally posted by BOUNCIN89MERC2LOW97LHS+Dec 22 2003, 08:41 PM--></span><table border='0' align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td>QUOTE (BOUNCIN89MERC2LOW97LHS @ Dec 22 2003, 08:41 PM)</td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'>@Dec 18 2003, 06:27 PM
u said when i change o rings i might be damaging them. when i put the shaft back in i hit it in with a hammer because its hard to get it in with new o rings. what is the correct way
Well, yeah. Everytime you hit that shaft with the hammer the shaft is probably scratching the inside of the casing; and it could also be scoring your o-rings. They shouldn't be that hard to put it. Yes, it takes some force, but not beating 'em with a hammer.
Sounds like you're trying to put the shaft back in without dumping the system. You need to hold your dump down while putting the shaft in so that you can slide it in there easier and not be fighting a dump valve.
i take my cyls off the car when i change the o rings
THANX FOR THE HELP
