@ nasty - that is brilliant - did you bend the scuttle (i think that's what it's called) at all ? it's pretty thin. You should get a lot of leverage out of that, but you did it all yourself, pulling on the bar and putting the collets back in with your other hand - wow you are very coordinated !
@grizzler - that Jamal guy is the dude - I watched all his flywheel pulling videos and they were such a help - lifesaver :)
Hm...actually i put the other end of bar underarm, so I just kind of used my body weight to push the spring down and I had probably one and a half hands to work on the collets, it was not hard. And my girlfriend did take a video of my work but file is too large to upload here.
