- Power Piston Retainer and Rod Retainer Clip Installation -

I finally tackled the power piston retainer and rod retainer clip today, which arrived last week. The rod retainer was fairly easy but the piston retainer was not a perfect fit right out of the bag. First, I had to break the old retainer. After I slipped on the new "split" type, I found that it was just a bit too large. After failing to cut off a piece of it with a knife, I ended up sanding down one side of the opening until it was perfect fit. Might even be a bit too snug.
