Does anyone have a good picture of the wiring method on the ring gear bolts. The one in my copy of the service manual is very dark. I have Glen's book and understand they are wired in pairs, but would like to see a picture of how it looks when completed.

Hard to explain but think on how the bolts loosen and wire so if they loosen the wire will get tighter

Check out this link. I did a "how to" thread on how to safety wire a few years back. It will give you a good idea of how its done.

Thanks for the help. Bob Middleton's description helped create a picture in my mind. (now if I can just keep it in my mind long enough to get the job done). I checked out the link posted by Ed Fuller and learned a lot about safety wiring.
