Spring Problem on Fly mojo
« on: March 01, 2009, 07:41:13 AM »
Hey you guys! I managed to put back the button at the spring block. Now i cannot change modes and it stuck on the balanced mode because the button doesn't allow the step stop to move back to the home position. The balance wheel cannot go further back and is loosen.
Here are some pics for you:

It is because you have the bridge adjusted too high. Adjust the bridge height lower and it will loosen right up.

EDIT: The bridge height is alreaady too low (the set screw of the tremolo is not visible) so I cannot lower it more!

I didn't say you have to leave it there but you're going to have to get the spring out.
Try going the other way I bet the trem is hitting something which isn't allowing the trem to move far enough for the spring to come loose.

It is not supposed to be visible.

No i meant that the metallic thingy that should touch the step stop is actually to much at the front and the step stop cannot move to the home position. It goes until midway and the hits the metallic button.

Right because the trem is hitting something. They way you have the spring adjusted in the picture it should fall out and then you'd have no trouble moving the trem stop.

You have strings on there? Put the bar in the trem and push it let the stop move.

The manual says that the bridge block should barely touch the step stop when it is in the home position but mine is too forward and doesn't allow the step stop to pass. That's basically my problem.

You're mixing up instruction on how it should be when it is set up but you're not close to having it set up. Push the bar put the button on the stop and tighten the spring then tune. Read the instructions. Also instruction on setting it up have been posted here numerous times.

If you want to remove the spring remove the strings from the tuners or use the bar to pull the trem away from the spring.

UPDATE: I finally fixed the problem today. I didn't know what was the cause of the problem so I improvised and made the spring shorter (about 3mm) and fortunately everything is fine now. :)

For anybody reading this in the future cutting the spring is NOT the solution.

Well, it worked fine for me though but yeah i would say don't try this unless it is absolutely 100% necessary.
