Solo 665-681 AV Springs
« on: July 30, 2012, 10:00:54 am »
The AV mounts on my 665/681 are real mushy.  Read to change them using Dolmar 6400-7900 AV mounts.  Got a set from Pat's (30 days to get NOT happy).  The kit PN 010 1140 39 comes with the screw allready installed in the right front.  The rear ones don't have the mt. screws factory installed.  Problem is I can't get the spring to unscrew from the cap to put the screws in.  I've tried channellock's, clamping spring in the vise.  And a few explicatives for Dolmar.  They should just put the screw in @ the factory.  Any suggestions/tricks?

Right rear (clutch side) AV mount screw is larger than the Dolmar screw.  Wound up cutting it out.   Trimmed head so  it would go in Dolmar AV.
Stripped the hole wound up not mattering as SIL dropped tree on tank and broke it.

It is a mute point now but . . . when you try to unscrew those springs, they grip onto the plastic and will not come off for anything.

You must go to the end of the coil that is over the plastic and push the spring unwound from the very end of the coil with a flat nose punch so as pushing on the end loosens the spring. Whereas if you were trying to screw it off from the outside, you would be tightening the coils onto the plastic.

Look in the repair manual at the spring removal tool for a Husqvarna 372 and see how it is made?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
