    Default Haybine Header Float Spring Repair

    I have broken the float springs on my header float. They all broke at the same length so I want to repair them. How do I get the cast iron end threaded into the spring?

    Screw them in. They go in a lot easier than they come out because the springs tend to open up a little as you screw the plugs in. Trying to screw them out tightens the spring coils tighter on the plugs.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if I could just screw them in without stretching the spring.
