The C7 owners manual says not to use jacking pucks larger than 2.5". Hockey pucks are 3" in diameter(that worked on my C6).

Yes, the C6 jacking pucks work. We tried them on the first couple C7's that arrived.

I am not sure if an actual hockey puck will work, as we've never tried that when the right tool is always available for the job.

I got home made pucks from my C5....... you know before anyone had a "manufactured" model, where if you wanted them you made your own. They worked on the C5 C6 and I've already had them on the C7. No problem.
