Have no worries, Epoch.... I'm well on my way to curmudgeonhood.

Sorry guys, I didn't think to look for comments until just now. The guy gives an explanation in the bolting guide, but the short version (from memory) is that you'd put the collar around the bolt, fill the hole with epoxy, insert the bolt and then tap the bolt/collar all the way in (which they didn't do fully in this pic). The slot in the collar allows any excess epoxy to come out, but is small enough to keep the rest in while it hardens. I can't speak for any structural issues around it (additional leverage, needing to recess the bolt, etc), but the guy's contact info is on the guide if you're interested in asking him.

Heh.... Yeah, no blood since I hid between a 18" square support column for all of the tests. The new electric pump on the puller is super convenient, but not so good as letting you baby things as they approach failure. On the upside it means that the failures are much more spectacular. :-)

Yup, there was no way I could get the runner on your cams over my shoulder, J_ung. With an additional 3" maybe, but even that might have been tight.

@Joe- There's a thread here somewhere that talks about that little loop... Apparently the manufacturers that have them stock generally use a slightly smaller diameter wire that can cut the sling when heavily loaded and the purpose of the extra loop is to provide padding to prevent that from happening (I think that info came from Mal@Trango). The stock slings on C4's have that little loop, so it may be something you might want to think about next time you replace the sling...
