I used what I had in places easy to get to, but it was still a pain when disassembling to figure out what was where. They do hold well, but you're right that they can be a pain in the rear. I replaced the phillips head ones with push pins when I found them on Amazon.

When I needed some I couldn't find a dealer with any for sale. Maybe they've got some in the shop for the mechanics; I don't know. But that's how I wound up with the screw-in ones from NAPA.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.

They actually broke before the pin was pushed in or I had to beat them with a hammer to push the pin in.

Nonsense, Ray. There is no problem that cannot be solved with a bigger hammer. In the military radar business, this

is what we used to call a fine alignment tool.

O ye, solves any problem with a bigger hammer. I got a job working in coal fired power station, the leading hand was ex - army sargent, and he had in his tool locker 64 pounds of hammers, that was his solution to fixing anything, Nick name Basha .
