I am upgrading to a torsion spring. I removed the stock extension spring without removing the inner case. Since the torsion spring goes outside the inner case, do I still need to remove it for anything?
Also, the "lever" that the stock extension spring was connected to is just floating on the shaft. Is this correct, I have basically just obsoleted that part and it remains on the shaft?
So basically, am I ok not removing the inner case if I've removed the spring? Thanks in advance. Maybe I can wrap this up tonight and move on to putting on my new chain.
BTW my stock spring had plenty of tension and travel, I almost closed it back up without changing it.
The factory spring lever does stay in place as it acts as a spacer to keep proper endplay.
You should be good to go, just try to catch all the debris as you drill the hole, keep it out of the engine.
I didn't pull my inner cover either when I had to redrill the hole and install a new spring.
Did you need the Deep Hole spacer ??
