Some of us have been there before just like you. You need to mount the cover in the vice jaws protected by some rags so as not to scratch it.

Take a smaller Phillips and stick inside the spring and with both hands push the spring into place.

But the spring will not stay there without the cover/screws that go over it to hold it on.

There's more to the story . . .

In order to compress the spring you will need to "trip" the brake so the little links on the other end of the spring are buckled up. This will make the spring easier to get into the proper place.

When you get done, the cover will not go on the 455 because the brake is tripped and the band is too small.

I took the brake handle off the saw and reset the brake - then re-installed the lever and the cover. I think cut4fun used the handles of a pair of Channel-locs to re-**** the brake?

IT'S ALL DONE-ENJOY
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
