    BaaaaaaaaHaaaaaaaaaa........ HaaaaaaaaHaaaaaa....
    Really? Has anyone got this POS tool to work? I'll use WSM pistons just because of the CP clips... Phuq those things..

    I got 1 clip in in the last 45 minutes. My carpal is now activated in both wrists... I mean really, it's overkill on the tension on these clips. The groove isn't deep enough for the clip to bite and stay in. I know cp is known for this drama but i've never had it this bad... Sheesh!

    yeah, the last set I did was pissing me off but once you get the feel it isn't too bad. It's not anywhere near as easy as their video either.

    I think the grooves are too thin for the clips. the clips just spins no matter how I try or what angle I use. It doesn't grab...

    I tossed the tool, drama as in stiff clips, that's all.. I have never seen that tool before to be honest. Only 7 or 8 motors with CP, the rest WSM
    So go figure, I get the clips in get to the last piston to install and find detailed this.... where's the quickest place to get this ring set?

    I took a 1/4" flat-blade screw driver and cut a small notch on blade face (a little offset), then push from center of C-clip and it plops right in.
