MBP Retainer Installation Tips, 4V

Sometimes the 4V MBP retainers fit a bit tight and its difficult to get them seated in the closer shim. I have included a "how to" installation guide with pics.

A counterbore must be machined into the bottom of the opener shim, to make room for the top of the MBP retainer. I carry them with the counterbore. They can be found under Individual Shims on my website. If you want to machine them yourself, email me and I can send you the spec for doing that.
