Need a set of spiro locks for my pistons. Anyone know the part # or the actual size I need? Or have a set laying around?

Gotta know what the pin size is first. Then call your piston mfg. and they will either sell you some or tell you what you need. Lem probably carries them.

the locks I have are .990"......the best thing to do may be to contact Probe to make sure you get the correct parts. I've found the guys at Probe to be very helpfull.

First thing I do is spread the spiral just enough to get the end started in the groove. Then i made me a pointed (screwdriver type) tool to keep shoving the lock in the groove while using the outside of the spiral to twist and turn it around the circumferance. After the first one it's not so bad. I never reuse them so removal is easy for mr,I just pry out the lip,grab the end w/needle nose plyers and twist it out.
Oh yea,oiling it helps a bunch too. Smile
