well, i'm not nearly as creative as some of you guys, but i didn't want to shell out big bucks on a neck cup installer

my cheap ass went to Ace Hardware, got a 3 foot section of all thread (which was way longer than i needed, but oh well) and a couple of nuts to fit the 3/4 allthread, and some big ass washers. i think that i spent about $6. i got 4 of the washers to fit the 3/4 bar, and then some bigger washers. sorry i don't remember the sizes. anyways, i got 8 of them.

stick the cups onto your neck, with the threaded rod going through, the 4 bigger washers were placed through on either end, then the 2 smaller ones, then the nuts. it was kinda noisy, but by tightening them evenly, i got the neck cups installed in about 2 min's, and didn't have to take a hammer to em! it actually worked quite well......

knocking em out, i've used an old socket on a 6" extention and just tapped em out. the crappy ballbearing ones came out looking like shit, cuz i beat the piss outta em, but the good chrome ones came out perfect, with only one little ding on the inside of one, where it goes into the neck. slowly.

also, i used a shop rag and some duct tape to catch em. made a little bag similar to a crap catcher that parade horses have....

also, if you heat em up with a torch, they seem to come out even easier
