This is the easiest and fastest way to R&R 206L and 407 KaFlex shafts.
Simply make 2 wraps on the driveshaft passing through the holes in the aluminum rods, tie a knot and twist the rods until the cord starts to tighten.
Tighten just enough to slip the shaft out.
This is a work aid and may not be accepted by some operations.
Mechanics love this because it works well but your shop may insist on using only approved tooling.
Use caution to not over compress the springs.
