Thanks Kevin. I thought of that but didn't mention it - wanted to see what you all would say first. I wonder if I could make a one piece strap/torque stay by flattening a long piece of tubing, making the end of it like the original torque stay. I half remember seeing a video on how to press tubing to make finished flat ends. I'll search that - maybe I'll get lucky and find that video, but it shouldn't be hard to do anyway. Appreciate your input.
