I need one of the large snap rings for the large lower ball joint screw cap for my ‘61 Spider’s A arm. Missing just one. Anyone have an extra?
It’s part #16 on page 270 of the parts manual: 1365.45.411.

The critical part of the ring is the stub that fits in the slot very precisely to lock the parts in place .. In a pinch you can make the loop and stub out of piano wire

Thanks for both tips. If I have to, I guess I can make one out of one of the extra wires I bought for refurbing my dash knob cables. Bought a couple the wrong gauge. Threw all my piano wires out after watching The Godfather. ;)

Thanks again, but l’ve lost weeks and months waiting on UK shipments and customs. Especially now, I’ll look closer to here in the states...not that it’s any better. Only DHL has been fast from Europe the last few months.
