    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.
    This is not Toys R Us where you can throw a tantrum in the aisle to get what you want.

    We live in a democracy, and there was an election.

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