Default Escutcheon compression tool.

Gary asked me about a photo of the shop made tool to compress the escutcheons so the pin can be installed on the window cranks. Don Bader is the guy that taught me this little helper.

It can be a bit slippery. I plan on gluing thin rubber on the "prongs" for a better grip. It is a real cuss word saver. LOL

That could also be used to hold the clutch fork in place while installing the engine.

Hi Pete. Been so crippled up since last September I'm hoping I can get the engine and new tranny in.

Methinks that the replacement springs are a lot stiffer than the originals.
