I got two new coils, but I'm still going to have to cut down the coil heels, does any body have a video that shows how to do this? Thanks. csw

This is a Mercury but should be similar to what you are doing.

when I get my coil heals filed down, what can I use to make sure they don't slide off the heals? Thanks. csw

Epoxy should hold them in place.

Would red Loctite work? I have the Loctite at hand. Thanks. csw

I would use epoxy. Loctite is not very gap-filling. But bear in mind that both soften at higher temperatures, so look at the temperature specs on the epoxy.
