Unfortunately, my complaint was that there WASNT a hex socket to use in the
piston....just two slots on the edges.  If there had been a hex-socket, it
would have been a 10 minute job...without it, it was a 30 minute job and
wasn't very pretty.

Thanks for the tip anyway, but beware....Bently shows the socket, but on mine,
there is none.
