J 38864 Counterbalance Spring Removal and Installation Tool
Caution: Do not attempt to service the regulator motor without releasing the counterbalance spring tension. The regulator lift arm is under tension from the counterbalance spring and can cause personal injury if the motor is removed from the regulator.
Important: Draw a line across the spring through the center with a marker or grease pencil in order to aid in the re-installation and orientation of the counterbalance spring.
Important: Ensure the marker or grease pencil line from the removal procedure is lined up. Lining up the mark will set the correct pyre-tension of the counterbalance spring.
