It's that easy eh? I knew there had to be a better way. Thanks a lot, I'm definitely going to give it a go in the morning. I have the part, I'd rather save the money for sure!
What part do you have? Ma Kaw considers the ACCT to be non repairable. The only part they sell is a whole new ACCT for ~$70 last time I heard.
TOC Manufacturing sells a heavy duty spring set for both ACCTs for ~$20, or Manual tensioners (MCCT) for ~$50 each.
Regarding the mounting tab on the oil line, here is another option.
Bend the tab out straight to remove the ACCT. Dave V. mentioned that he was able to bend his back w/o breaking it, BUT if you have bend it again a time or two, the steel will eventually get brittle and break.
You don`t HAVE to bend it back to re-attach, as the oil line is plenty strong enough with out it.
If you feel better by supporting the oil line there, get a little 1", 90* bracket and attach one arm to the oil line tab, and the other where the tab was originally bolted on the ACCT. Just as strong as the original, and easier to work on later if needed.
