[T3] Flaps Closed For Business

What I feared has come to pass - while changing my spark plugs I found my
flaps spring detached and floating around the head area under the right
tin. Visual inspection of the notch I carved in the flaps rod confirms they
are not opening after warm up. Car is running hot and Commuter is hotter.
Options for someone who can't afford to take his car down for another week?
I'm thinking needle nose pliers holding the rod in an open position. What
do you say? Are there any options coming in from the top rather than the
rope trick fan removal, which shaved a few months off my life last time I
did it. 1970 fastback FI AT
