Thanks for your comments and assistance. Bob you were correct. The new main spring had broken about 1/2 way out from the arbor. Its amazing that it ran at all. I guess I had abused the spring sufficiently enough to weaken the spring. As I mentioned it flew around the room about 4 times in my attempt to wind it into the spring winder. Thankfully I bought two.
