Using my homemade installation tool, I can't get the !%$#@^& to compress far enough to turn the tool. It's worked many times before, any ideas?

Yes, put a shoe box over your lower while you try to get the pin in. If you fail to do it right, you wont lose it as easy. Just keep trying, and take your time. You [u]will[/u] get it!

You are sure that you are using the correct spring of the correct length? Or you are sure that your detent spring hole is bored to full depth? Sounds strange for me to ask but I've encountered this once before, a detent spring hole that wasn't deep enough and I had to cut just 2-3 coils from the spring to get my front pivot pin installed properly.

2 or 3 coils is about the distance I need to turn the tool This is a Model 1 lower kit and both detent pins and springs are the same length The detent spring chamber is exactly 1" deep Does all this sound right?

That was it, the spring chanber is only 1.03" deep, I'm going to cut the spring accordingly. Thanks
