Oh shit, while I'm brain dumping, I also learned that if I "strategically" placed my compression stroke with the bungee cord filling the cylinder that I could also orient the eccentric shaft lobe for "that" cylinder so that it wasn't putting pressure on the eccentric lever which made it much less likely that an eccentric lever will drop and force the spring out of the "V" groove. - You'll see what I mean when you get there, pretty straight forward once you do one.
