I broke one and need to replace it. Does ACE or Orchard carry these?
Ace did last time I was in one. That was in Illinois though
thanks, i'll check them first. if not there then orchard, then the mom and pops shop
What size ? R/C cars and trucks use those on the hinge pins and shock shafts .
I got one a NAPA. They had an entire tray of them in the back. All different sizes.
yea thoes things can be fun to get off the servos and aculmators, When i was rebuilding my 350 i broke one and just got one from ace
i'm off to find them. Its about the size of a dime, a little smaller actually
let me know if you cant find one I have an assortment and will mail you out one.
Lowes has a pretty decent selection, so does napa.
thanks. They are easier than I thought to find. Arrow hardware had them.
all over the place!...
I get them at Lowe's too,or Home Depot,or any decent hardware store or parts store..I hope a special place in hell is reserved for the guy who invented those "e" clips..and the inventor of "snap rings" too..being a small engine repairman,I've had more than my share of grief caused by those things....they are hell to install,easy to break,easier to LOSE,and broken peices cause all kinds of carnage when they go thru the gears or bearings in tranny's.. ....Roll pins are next on my list of "most annoying hardware inventions"....
My local Napa and Carquest (along with most of the decent Ace Hardware's) just for future notice.
