This is a follow-up to the immensely popular, original C/R / Backtrack PS4002FK hood alignment jig.

 

The original one incorporated K & S rectangular tubing, that wrapped over the outside of the less than perfect hoods.

 

The hoods have really been excellent lately, so it made sense to make an alignment fixture, like we made for the PS2002, and 2003, sealed D cans, where you use a standard Koford alignment bar.

 

Shown with 2 bars, but you really only need one.

 

Like the new 2 finger triggers, this item has been assigned a Chicagoland part # as I intend to offer it to distributors at a short discount.

 

CR023 $20.00 retail (alignment bars not included)

LOL- good comparison.

 

I was just thinking, at lunch, today, Greg's new Dan Gurney avatar pic, when viewed on my small LG phone, looks like The Great Kazoo.

No reason it shouldn't.

Yes, of course.

 

It's the same set-up as the 4002FK, and the arm shaft does extend far enough out of the endbell.

 

and on JK Hawk-6 cans.

Not very well because there isn't any arm shaft sticking out of the endbell.

 

Regardless, these aren't typically sealed, so there isn't any reason why you can't align the hoods the traditional way.
