    G'Day Guys

    I have a few questions.
    I just got my B7 shackle and it is definitely 100-1100 so that's all good.
    Must be tough little bugger to take 1000 pounds.
    I cant seem to figure this little thing out.
    I am hoping to restore it and mount a bomb to it to drop for a display.
    How does the electrics work cause it all seems mechanical to me?
    Also how would I go about restoring or testing this thing, I can't really open it up because of how its made?

    Thanks
