ACCT Replacement

First of all. I want to thank everyone here! I could not have done it without you all. What a pain in the neck! It is not the job for the faint harted. You guys were right on the money as far as needing manual dexterity. I can't even explain how I was able to do it. But all in all, the job is done and what a difference it made. NO MORE CLATTER!. A big thanks to Darrelc5 ! Had you not updated the instructions for TOC, I still would be scratching my head. Thank you all once again! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Hey, glad to hear you had a successful experience with this. You guys made me order the replacement springs to do mine. I have Manual CCT's but have never quite been happy with them. Maybe I'm too chicken to tighten them enough to calm the noise, but for 10 bucks a piece, I figured what the heck. I got new springs on the way. Hope I'm as successful with this as you were!

Thanks fergy. It is so nice to not hear the noise anymore. Just make sure that you have darrelc5's updated instruction to TOC's acct rebuild instructions. If I can help any give a shout. And good luck!

Thanks!

OK, Sounds good. One more thing. Try to find a short screwdriver that is thin enough to use when you wind up the spring.This will help tremendously when trying to hold the screwdriver and the acct with one hand and installing the spring clip with the other hand. Found out the hard way. Good luck Fergy!

I use a 1/4" drive ratchet with a flat blade tip in it. I can wind up the spring then easily hold the ACCT and the ratchet with one hand freeing up the other to start the screws.

Excellent tip Jon. I have one that I'll use for that. Can't wait to get my springs now.

I used a palm ratchet like pictured below.
It's small and easy to hold everything with one hand.

Whew! Took me many tries to get one rebuilt. Couldn't keep the barrel shaped piece from rising into the way and keeping me from being able to push the plunger into place to snap the ring on. I finally got my wife to help me and I could hold the stuff down while she snapped the ring into place. Something that might help the more gifted than I especially if you are doing it alone, snap the ring into place before you start installing the guts. Then lift the spring out of the groove and down below the groove so it's out of the way, but just a tad from snapping in. That might be what the directions said to do, I don't remember, but on the one I managed to do myself, it made it easy to snap the ring into place the one time I did get the tab to go into the housing.

And, my clattering is gone! That makes me really happy!

Yep, TOC springs are just about in the same 'miracle category' as Seafoam !! LOL
