Reaction Disk pictures and walkthrough

Thank you for the help!! It is very much appreciated.

 

I got baptized in the reaction disk this weekend. I did notice that most of the posts here say to glue the disk in. I read the FSM and they say to use grease. I used grease and it works well so far. Should be good for another 20 years.

 

Thanks again for the assistance.

Bringing back this excellent thread...

 

Does the booster need to come off in order to remove the push rod assembly and check for the reaction disc? Even though blue72's was off the car, that doesn't seem like a necessary step from looking at the pics, correct? Granted, if the reaction disc is missing I suspect the booster has to come off to shake it out of there.

 

Also does removing the push rod tend to tear up that seal? I searched MSA and googled the internets at large but didn't come up with a replacement. Are seals typically reusable after pulling them out of the booster?

I never had any problem with the seal either.  It is pretty tough rubber.  With some kind of homemade creativity you might be able to fish the disk out of the booster without taking it off the firewall.

Sorry about that, I just barely got new hosting and had to point the nameservers to the right place. I'm working on making sure everything is back up across the board. Looks like I still have to delete a bunch of old PMs though to make sure messages can get to me once more.

 

I tried to send blue72 a PM but got a message that blue72 is not able to receive any messages. None of the pics are loading up for me, is there any way to get them restored for this thread?
