I have a 14-16 and a 14-73. I am attempting to put the 14-73 back in service. Have used very few parts from the 14-16.

My question regards the Balance Spring. It's purpose and how it works. Apparently is it a shock adsorber on the break-away?

The instructions say to turn the adjusting bolt out until it is flush with the spring cap. No instructions beyond that point.

If I do this, I do not have enough threads to tighten the other end cap up to the spring, let alone compress it.

Changing this unit from the other mower is not an option as I have been unable to remove the pin which holds the adjusting bolt in place.

Need serious help PLEASE!
