Ok, I watched all of the online videos I could find before attempting this swap. I watched the guys a fixmypig, yaffee, drag specialties, ect, ad nauseum. I used bearing grease on the covers and tried piano wire, bathroom plug chain, and ended up using 550 cord as a pull device. Th problem seemed to be the acuteness of the two angles and the fact that they were not smooth as the factory 47 are said to be. I was also doing this by myself for the first time and was pretty sure I could do it within a day. NOPE. BUT, If I had to do it again I could probably cur it down to a couple of hours knowing what I know now. That's the beauty of doing something the first time, you always learn how to do it better the next.
Lessons Learned - spend the extra coin up front and purchase the bars everyone else says are easiest to wire!
Take what ever time everyone else says they took and double it.
Take that time and double it again.
dudes on here are all liars when it comes to their mekinekin skills. (JK)
If you can afford to pay someone else to do it PAY 'EM,
I enjoy wrenching on my beast but sometimes it truly does just suck!
All joking aside this was truly a learning experience. I now know how t disassemble a multipin connector and am capable of fabricating all kinds of goodies to make wrenchin more fun!
No they weren't Yaffee bars and at this time I'm not going to name the manufacturer as there are some finish issues I'd like to get taken care of first and I'm not going to blast them online if I don't have to
Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!
