    Is this the wrong recoil for this flywheel?

    Hard to tell on that diagram..... I have this random spring. I assumed it went under the cap washer to hold pressure downwards.

    Got it! Was just missing a washer..... I guess the excess clearance wasn’t forcing it to work properly. Thanks again Harley.

    The FBMorse recoil works on friction, do no oil or lube the friction washers as they need to be clean and dry to work correctly.
