Chopper 1 spring repair longevity

another chopper 1 spring home repair

The last Chopper 1 spring repair lasted over two years.

I guess all that pounding took its toll on the adhesive bond and caused the support pin to work its way loose. Luckily it stayed attached to the spring and all I needed to do was re-seat the pin, glue it in place and hook the spring back up.

if it breaks loose again why don't you get another piece of wire a bit longer bend maybe a 3/16 leg on each end drill a couple of holes at say 45 degree in the recessed pockets of each one pointing opposite the other.Insert one end, thread spring, bend other leg,insert and glue it all up. I guarantee it would take less time to do it than it takes me to type this up and it should last a long long time.
