Circlips made easy. Super easy

Recommended Posts

I made something had makes circlips super to install. d0823be9f8ff7b074715eded6cdabd07.jpg

All it is a piece of steel stock that I ground down to fit in the wrist pin(because I didn't have the right size steel stock on hand so I just took some metal off w/the grinder). Then I drilled a hole about half way through it and hammered a short pin into the hole. Then I ground the pin so it would just fit in the circlip's hole. then put the one end of the circlip in, put the pin on the end you just in. Press press the tool in pretty hard and twist. It makes putting them in a breeze.

The main handle part ended up being 15/32" and the pin was 1/8".

Not sure I understand your description of how to use it. Can you post a pic of it in action? Circlips can be a real pia. And a good tool for them is expensive.

Thanks!

I got the idea from this video just I don't have a lathe and mill and shop press so I used a drill press, steel stock, a vise and a hammar. It is around the middle that they show how to use it. And you do have put some push behind it or it won't work. Insert the circlip part of the way just one tail of it. Take the stud poking out of the tool and put it on the tail of the clip you just put in. Push in towards the piston and making a spin it. But while you are spinning(not fast just rotate it in a circle in the wrist pin) you also need to put a little bit of pressure towards the stop the stud is at or the tool will slip and the circlip will go flying and will need to start over. The video does a good job showing how to do it.

      What is a good option for a 13 year old that is dying to get her very own atv to ride? Thanks in advance for your recommendations. I currently own a Polaris Sportsman 570 and have been happy with the Polaris sportsman line but have ruled out other brands.

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      The title pretty much explains it all. When using the starter I can hear it spinning but not engaging the engine. The wheels also do not engage with the wheels when the clutch is out. The motor has compression if that helps.
      I am new to engine work and repair and I bought this quad with the idea of fixing it up (not knowing the full extent of the damage). The previous owner said it ran but sat for a year (I don’t believe that for a second after opening it up) and had bought a few new plugs and a starter motor, none of which fixed the issue.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      I have attached a few pics of what I think could be wrong.
