Topic tags/keywords: question planer dewalt

I need some help from the LJ’s. I have a Dewalt dw733 planer. I put a piece of twisted hardwood in and damaged the right inside area of the planer blades. I purchased the replacement parts and now am having trouble with how the torsion spring should be mounted. The spring keeps the blade shaft locking plate in position. As you can see in the picture, the spring is held by a screw and washer to the frame. The spring in the picture is not under tension. If someone could take the cover off of their planer and tell me how I should position the spring under tension, I would be grateful.

Thanks Don

Thanks for the reply, but the exploded view doesn’t show enough detail on how to mount the spring under tension.
