    Cool Just maybe

    108
    I think you see my idea
    1 Do not remove nut
    2 grind a half circle in the, will call the back tabs
    3 place in a vise heat with fire wrench
    4 bend tabs over to the center
    5 now grind out the tabs that hold the nuts in
    Hope fully you find a cage size that fits the rod end
    If close grind some metal off the rod end

    All you can do is try 108

    Jackie is there a part number on the bag of clips you got
    3842312 or 3864543 gm number ???

    Wink Warped Mind?

    Why would anyone think we have a warped mind? This is just part of a years long effort to fabricate an obscure door rod clip used for holding cargo doors in place on 50 year old vans that are not widely popular or even known of with 98% of the public. It'll end up helping a handful of people, many of whom I've not met. We'd spend countless hours and an untold amount of money working on something that we could never get anywhere near breaking even on and then, would at best, earn an on-line thank you from a fellow internet forum club member. How is that considered a warped min... wait a minute. Nevermind.

    Till we find(or make) the right clips
    Gotavan Dan posted a Long time ago that GM looked at rod clips as a one shot deal
    If you worked on rods(1 st gens rods are Adjustable) you put on New clips

    I saw those but didn't pull the trigger because we need something more readily available. Those are so rare and expensive that if they did work, it would solve 1 person's problem but do no good for everyone else.
