|shad88||I ended up using a small dremel cut off to make a small grove in each side of the ring so the little projections on the end of the pliers had a place to bite in and keep from slipping. Got it on there on the second attempt. Thanx for the help.|

You need a proper set of lock ring pliers. If you're using the kind with the little projections on the tip, I feel your pain. I tried them and almost lost my mind, as well as a couple of fingers. One of these should do the trick:
Craftsman 47386 or 00947386000
Occasionally you'll have to de-burr the edge of the groove and/or the edge of the ring with a file.

Snap Ring Pliers Problem
Im putting a Saginaw 4 speed back together and have run into a problem. I can't get the ring on that holds the front bearing on the main shaft. I worked this thing for over an hour and still can't get it on there. I tried internal and external pliers. Does anyone know a trick to getting this thing on? It's driving me nuts!
