Tip for putting waterbox strap back on
Some may find this easy or have a better way to put it back on.
I find the strap to be entirely too tight from the factory. I got a small key ring (little metal circle thing you put your keys on) and put it on the metal end of the strap. This gave me an extra half inch to get it on the clip and it is still very tight.
Makes for getting it on and off much easier while still holding it well in place.
Just thought I would share.

I grab the strap as far down as I can and pull with my body facing opposite the hook. So basically I pull it onto the hook backwards and I also flip the strap over once first because as I pull it twists back around to the correct orientation. It's easy for me. Could be for you too.

I didn't have an extra flat screw driver to notch so I used a small pry bar, which had the notch in the flat end...it was on the short side though...so I cuss a lot too.

I cut a notch in an large old screw driver and that works great with some effort since it still tight.

I used to do that...cuz that is...Lurker!
Now I use a flat head with a notch drilled in the middle. Grab the metal piece with it and drag down. Super easy on/off....And trust meeeee!!!...stuff is not easy for me!
