They look very useful for the price. Could have used them. But I could not rotate them - too tight (without the wrench). I pinged them out with compressed air,and reset.
FWIW this was not as simple as I thought - my compressor on full noise could not budge most of them. Finally I cleaned the protruding bits up, lubed them with hydraulic fluid and squeezed them fully in. This did the trick , altho had to be repeated 2-3 times for most.
They shoot out at 90 mph no matter how careful . To avoid damaging them I put my hand between them and the clamp holding opposite piston. Very painful. I probably should have used thin wood, but every now and then I like to make a human sacrificial offering to the god called Porsche. Now that I have set them, I probably don't need a clamp - but would have liked one y/day.
