    Bring it to the scrap yard and put the $0.75 towards a new amp.

    I've heard stories of trunk fires with Volfenhag amps! Seriously OP either just rig it (cause you're not going to find that part) or invest in a new amp.

    Without seeing where they go, I'm guessing that they're spring clips that hold transistors against the heatsink? If that's what they are then you need to find a replacement or fabricate something. Without them the transistors will overheat and burn out.

    Maybe you can find something similar at Mouser...

    Any suggestions on how to fabricate something? Maybe a strip of metal bolted to the casing? Would that cause any grounding problems? Maybe aluminum should be used

    start searching here, and you will find exactly what you want, or you could just use these. they are available form many sites, and digikey will get it to you the fastest, in my experience, with decent pricing and reliability. i just didn't take the time to get you to the digikey part link, but now you know where to start. my advise, is to have it gone through, and it might actually be made into a half-decent amp that won't "catch on fire".... not sure what would make it catch on fire.



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Re: Volfenhag ZX-7180 Need Help

    DO you think thats the exact part number? Will that part number work? I was looking at clips and my seem to be bent different where they slide into the rail. Maybe I can order a clip and make it work for me though, I might have to do some fabrication but thats OK as long as it works and it dissipates heat thats all that matters.

    Thanks for your help.
