I think I may have figured out the problem. I checked first to make sure I was torqueing inthe right direction, thanks Stacey. But I was. I thought maybe I did not have enough room in the groove for the spring so Imade it a bit deeper in bohthe blade and the liner but that did not work either. This is getting expensive in springs. Looked at it some more and wondered. The groove that I have cut for the spring is just that a groove, both in the blade and the liner. In niether case have I gone all the way through so in effect I have a trench that is the exact size of the spring,therefore there is no room to the inside of the spring for it to contract. Does that make sense, do I need to broach out the centre completely in order to allow the spring to contract?
