Good old baling wire. Zip ties work too, but I found the wire more satisfactory. The fifteen bucks I'd spend for a 3416 clamp will buy a lot of wire.
Just don't let any wire fall into your trans when removing it, or you'll be using your flexible magnet, again.
Yep, I was very careful about stuffing rags and keeping a tight grip on everything.
Steve, Next time try plastic wire ties. They work great for me and are easy to take off.
OOPS, I didn't read close enough. Sorry
Plus if the plastic ties fall in your transmission, they aren't as destructive if you can't get them out.
Steve, glad to hear that you retrieved the spring and completed your band installation and adjustment!
Now that the touring will be back on the road soon, what's up with the Runabout? I thought it was close to being finished also.
The roadster is waiting for me to build some shelves and clear away some of the Godawful mess in my shop so I have room to do the rear axle.
Gotta clean up this shop one of these days.
Looks like Jim and Marian in the hall....
If bailing wire is the UFRT, what does that make duct tape?
After you get the springs and nuts on, how do the bands line up with the drums?
Like the washer on the low speed adjustment. Good idea. That little ridge on the adjuster does seem to get rounded over quickly.
"UFRT".... how do you pronounce that?
Yes, that was my take on it too. Excellent.
I haven't seen Fibber Magee and Molly in a long time. Thanks Steve.
Steve, I think you should re-name that tool to Ford Universal Repair Tool. FURT is much easier to say and remember for this old fart.
