Ok, no go with the pics...sorry. Reomve the snap ring, tap on the acuator rod so it will knock the plug out of the housing. Install a bolt to plug the acuator rod hole, reinstall plug and snap ring. I did leave the solinoid in the pedistol,but its unplugged.
The only advantage to buying a non evbp pedistol, it may be easier to acess the back bolts holding it down in the valley.
If you can find/use brass nuts on the turbo/exhaust flange...wont be near as difficult to break loose next time.
