    VTS tool

    just a quick question...Do I really need the VTS tool or can i get away with using a small wrench?

    Also any advice for installing the Free flow on the RXP-X?

    If you have the tool, you don't need to remove the pump...If you try a wrench, you will most likely have to remove the pump...

    Your call...

    if u r talking about the 36mm plastic nut on the back........then a 36mm socket will remove it once u remove the exstension rod from the vts shaft u can easily remove the plastic nut with a 36mm socket without taking out the pump! good luck!

    I have the OEM one and it works very well. VTS out in 5 minutes or less

    I also have one I made form PVC pipe. but 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" PVC, melt the end with torch and then push onto the nut and let solidify. it will take the shape of the nut and for all intents and purposes become a makeshift socket.

    they're not on with alot of torque and come off fairly easily. plus if the PVC is long you don't have to remove any part of the VTS box....not even the cover, it will come out complete.

    PVC, I LIKE THAT!

    I just took a 1.25 socket, chopped it in half, and welded a 12" of 1.5" tube between...hand pressure is al that is needed...

    I used boiling water to make a PVC pipe socket like yours.
