Re: Strut braces
I have a Momo in mine. It has an adjustable thread bit so fitting it was a cinch.
It caused the bonnet opening problem.. what happens is the bonnet "flexes" where it has to curve over the brace, so the bonnet hooks don't release from the clasp, unless you "straighten" the bonnet while you're trying to open it by pressing on the area where the brace is.
On mine, I could see that the cause was the bonnet liner was too thick for the brace. I squashed it down where the brace marks were and that made it better... so I squashed it down some more.
Now it's become "bedded in" on the brace by itself and I don't have any problems with the bonnet opening. Some people cut a piece out of the liner.. but I didn't have to.
No bullets for Chaingun..
