    Thanks David I may have missed some tips in the course material, I’ll review it again.

    I just checked out the video, which didn’t help much, as he’s transferring the precoiled spring to his winder before installing. But that may be my answer as I would then have the end of the spring out where I could place it better.

    I’ve done many , many spring replacements,..but this one just made me start to rethink my methodology a bit
    I was hoping that I could have better luck with just leaving the spring in the carrier it came in, and I’ve had good luck with that overall..but I think that won’t be my option with this style.
    When the new one arrives,..I’ll just transfer it to my winder,…and get the job done !
