Doug Rollert told me how he did it, sounds easy, but I'm not
there yet. First, make a wedge that fits around the stem and
between the cap and the fork of the stem. Needs to be just
thick enough to allow the main spring, washer and nut to go
on. Crank the nut down, compressing the spring, add the lock
nut and then screw onto the spring tube. This should allow it
to start at least. As you screw it down, the spring will
compress and the stem will rise up and the wedge can be
removed. I can picture all this in my head, hope it makes

Just got a couple springs to install on my 25 Deluxe.

Anyone have instructions on a good approach to installing

The two springs. I can see it is going to be a compressing
job that someone out there has a tried and proven method.
Thanks for the help
