wastegate actuator canister

I removed the wastegate actuator canister to install my wicked wheel and now I cant get it back on no matter how much I pull and pry on it

Since I fell off my truck and hurt my arm, I thought I would post to see if there is any trick to this stupid thing.

Thanks for reading!

Now that I think about it, it would be easier to remove the clip from the other end, and install that side last

Sorry no suggestions .. other than - don't fall off. I was changing my glow plugs and I was out flat on top of my engine (cold) 14 deg outside half in the garage ( won't fit in low ceiling). I think it would be rough falling all that way. I just bought a 99 F-350 4X4 with a factory 4" lift. it up there!

Happy healing

You could remove the clip but you better have another one handy, SOBs sprout wings when they come off...lol I got a small piece of hose that fit on the nipple & put a small amount of air press (5-10lbs) to extend the rod then slip it on.

Kevin2011, Kevin is a great name, Kevin is my name. I have a 8" lift and 42's, I hit the concrete so hard I didn't know where I was. Congrats on your new truck!

Cj45lc, thats a good idea, if only I was more patient and waited for your reply. I figured out the the rod part moves alittle bit, and it gave me enough slack to get the canister part on. Thanks!
