    Urgent help needed

    OK seriously this is getting overboard now.

    How do I get the kartboy knob in the socket? I have tried EVERYTHING!!

    I am not going to bother trying to use force because its not going to work.

    I need to remove the c clamp and I dont know how. If any one can describe to me where I can locate it that would be awesome.

    Thanks!!

    Seriously, you have to go to Lowes or something and get the heaviest plastic-coated mallet you can find. Then give it a few big wacks. Might take more than one...

    This was the only way to get my ss in the white plastic socket.

    It was a major pain in the ass!

    +1 It does take a bit of coercion to get that sucker back in.

    Cool thanks!

    Everyone is saying the same thing so I will have to pick up a massive rubber hammer and go to town.

    Cheers!

    A rubber mallet is what I used...took 3 good wacks. Be sure you liberally coat the ball of the shifter with lithium grease too.

    Love to build 'em, just to ship 'em out and start all over!

    I got friends in cyberspace, so I must be cool, right?
