The staple idea might work better then trying to remove the pin connecters from the old jumper or use HD jumpers that are massive compaired to the pin size. I might just dig around in the garage and fine something that will work.

Well I have OC my system. It's now running at 450MHz. I tryed to go to 500MHz but I got a few kernel panics. Shockingly the 50NHz jump has made this system faster. OSx boots a lot faster and Firefox loads up nicely.
I took some standard jumpers and pulled out the metal and then stuck in some Tin foil. This way it won't make the pin bend outward. I also taped the old jumper cap next to the logicboard so I won't lose it.

Thats a good idea. I had issues OC'ing mine past 400mhz due to it being a 300mhz machine. I always figured the safe line was a 50mhz jump, and 100mhz jump was pushing it on the B&W's. Anything faster, from my readings, typically caused Kernel panics. If you pushed yours to a 150mhz jump, bravo.
Glad your B&W is faster now.
