I took some pics the other day when it was raining and was going to upload them onto another thread at a later date. But may upload them here if I can get around to it.

I gave that a try and nothing, I took out the arm again and heated the spring so that it didn't break, bend it some more, and put pressure on the spindle then it works.

Thank for your help guys.
