I'm recurving a couple of Duraspark distributors. Any of you know where to get the tool to work with these clips? I can probably make one using a couple of tiny roll pins soldered onto a small pair of snap ring pliers, but I'd just as soon spare myself the frustration and buy a pair. I've done these 30 years ago and don't remember exactly how I got them back on. I tried using a straw to get it started on the shaft...maybe I need to make a push tool to keep it square.

Question #2, does anyone sell a vacuum advance lockout plate for the Duraspark? Looks like a pretty simple plate to make, but if there's something out there, I'd just as soon buy one as make it.
