Just got a phantom f/h and crush washer along with a DPMS tool and some blue Loc-Tite. How hard is it gonna be to install the f/h and just how hard do I have to turn the f/h to put it in correctly. I don't have a vise.The Phantom is a 4 slot type.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Reg Phantom with no solid bottom, you want have to torked it all that tight.
But, If you have the new style Phantom, youll need to use a vise.

You can do it by hand, but the crush washer needs to crush to lock it on. If you don't want to use a wrench try a screwdriver through the slots of the F/H and turn it enough to be pretty tight, but make sure you don't dent the F/H or Mar it up.

So, not to tight, but enough to lock the f/h with the crush washer. I think I will use the wrench for this, I would hate to mar the Phantom.

Thanks to both of you,
