I am attempting to install the torsion spring in an automatic. I am using a 1/2" od spring from knifekits, I am not sure which strength. The problem is that when I attempt to load the spring, that is take the blade of the knife from the open position to the closed the spring deforms. It seems to have only about 90 degree travel before deforming. Obviosly I am doing something wrong but I am not sure what.
