Today I went out to try and find a shop open on Saturday to see if I could get that pin out of the intermediate shaft end. I went by this guy's shop who works on my wife's Subaru, his shop press was down so he sent me around the corner and I got it done there. Now I could get the old boot off. NAAAASTY!! The clamp on the Left is the factory clamp. The one on the Right is one I modified from some that went to my old Honda, and ground the finger's down so it would fit inside the coupler better and clear the insides good. It's a little wider but I don't think that will matter. I'll take a close look to make sure before I commit. It's the exact same size as the factory one so it won't be any tighter on the end of the boot. It just needs to be a good seal to keep the grease in. Does anyone know the actual name of these kinds of clamps. I'd like to see what I could order before I have to put the old one back on there, just in case the new one doesn't work out?
