Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question. I was out all day and just got home and perhaps others were as well. Yes, there is spring tension on the other end so you will either need to keep it from rolling around OR rewind the tension on that end when you get done installing the new motor assy. Hope that proves helpful here. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee.
