Thank you! Wasn't able to find that in the shop manual. Very hard to decipher. I have a plastic tool like that.

Is your shop manual a factory service manual? Just wondering, looking for alternatives.

I have both books of the 96 FSM sitting on my shelf. Shoot me an email at matt270avian@aol.com if you want them
