    Default HELP, another one stuck with MT

    I'm not sure if I am an idiot here but I am having a hard time understanding what these instructions are telling me to do, this is an old f3 units rear coupler I am trying to assemble and am struggling to get my head around how I am to even start.

    First -- remove the "pin" (that held the stock coupler spring)
    Then put the MT coupler together.
    Install the coupler in the truck
    Put the MT spring into the metal MT pocket. (You can use a little dab of vaseline or spit to hold it in place) -
    Then slide the metal piece into the MT coupler --

    Done

    Ahh, ok so cut the post, doesn't show that in the pictures, the back of that paper doesn't have instructions either.

    All done, thanks for the help with this @SP-Wolf
    only thing I would say is a longer shank might be better for the CBQ version since the pilot is different to the regular style f3

    DAn,

    Looks good to me.

    As for a longer shank -- what radius curves do you have-?
    Depending on what your radii are -- you may be correct.

    11" is smallest, I don't see myself using the front coupler on the F3 but now I've said that I am sure I will put my foot in my mouth
