Removing Spiral Locks On Floating Wrist Pins

To Remove The Spiral Locks On Full Floating Wrist Pins Without Damaging Them I Did The Following. You'll Need Two Small Blade Type Screw Drivers With Thin Blades. Take One Screw Driver And Move The End Of The Lock, With A Small Notch, Away From The Groove. With The Other Screw Driver Slip It In Between The Lock And The Groove In The Piston . Now You Can Take The Other Screw Driver And Start Lifting The Lock Out Of The Groove. I Know These Spiral Locks Are A Pain , But Here Is Where You Need To Exercise Some Patience. Once You've Put A Few In And Removed A Few It Becomes Easier.
