Customer Question

Please help. I am in the process of replacing a set of double flanges on a 1900's steinway upright. The damper spring is on the center pin. Do you have any helpful hints or advise other than "run" . I am finding it extremely difficult to align spring and flange with pin holes. Any a advise would be very helpful. Please respond. I feel like I am on a foreign planet with no rescue insight.
Thank you.

No. These are not just the damper return springs. This is the entire double(two eyed) wooden flange that has the no tailed damper spring on the flange center pin and the other eye of the flags is the hammer butt. The piano is a 1900.

Could you attach a photo please?

No no no ! I am NOT replacing damper springs at all. I don't think you understand my question about an acoustic piano especially of this vintage.
Thanks anyway.
