How do you loosen or remove the clamps that hold the hoses to the N75 valve. I have an N75J I am trying to install but I cant get the rings off. They are not the screw clamps but the annoying ones with the raised pinched head.

Anyone offer a hand?

TIA

I came across that too a few days ago when I installed my DV. There should be little prongs on the metal strap, I just got a small screw driver under the tab and popped the tab off. I'm pretty sure you can't reuse it, so you'll need a new hose clamp to re-install.

Use a dremel and a cutting wheel. Takes them right off. Just be careful you don't cut any hoses or anything.

got em off with some elbow grease and put the valve in. I tested her out and I definitely noticed a tiny bit more pull, esp in 1st gear.
