Accel pump boot replacement
« on: April 22, 2019, 05:58:33 PM »
Hi new here but lurker for a bit

Have my Cliff kit but trying to figure how to replace the Accel pump boot and retainer.  Old boot ripped a bit so I pulled it out.   There's a ring in the well but cant figure if it comes out or not or if it does come out how?
Then how to install the new one??

Thanks for any help

Be very careful removing the ring you can crack or break the airhorn as it's very thin in that area.

I use a small thin screwdriver and gently pry them out.  You may have to grind one to a knife edge to get under it.

The accl pump is installed into the airhorn first, then the boot, then the retaining ring.  I use a hole punch to seat the ring but make sure you have excellent support under it before driving the ring down as it's easy to break the airhorn in that area.

I use a couple of blocks of wood under the airhorn and gently tap the ring in place.....Cliff
