Torsion spring

Shortly after I received the bike I changed the oil and found a small piece of wire gauge steel stuck to the magnetic drain plug.

It was .062" diameter, that Eagle Mike confirmed was the same as the Torsion spring for the Doohickey, and he promptly sent me another one free of charge even though the prior owner installed it in 2008 and very well may have damaged it during installation.

So I finally got around to opening it up and sure enough the end of the Torsion spring is broke off as you can see in the picture.
