In this tutorial, you will learn how to replace the cone and spacer in your TorqueMaster torsion spring. Often customers confuse TorqueMaster One with TorqueMaster Plus and they order springs with the incorrect winder cones. The quickest fix for this is to remove the cones from the old springs and install them in the new springs. Otherwise, the shipping cost to return the incorrect springs and to ship the new springs is more than the cost of the springs.
Some of the older TorqueMaster springs had black winder cones for .721 inch ID springs and these are not compatible with the new .65 inch ID springs. When this occurs we can provide just the winder cones and save on the shipping costs for the customer.
On international shipments we can sometimes remove the cone and spacer and ship the spring in the less expensive USPS packages. In these cases the customer reuses his existing 3/8 inch diameter spacer tube. If you decide to do this please get from us the length needed for cutting your old spacer.
This process is best completed with a vise, a hammer, a punch or screwdriver, a pair of vise grips, a pipe wrench, and a cloth for cleaning grease off the winder cone.
