Re: Disc or Belleville Spring Install

The ring to retain it should have one square ends and be .080" thick

You apply pressure down and work the snap ring around . It is a tight fit , it has to be to be a return spring. watch that the disc stays centred , if it moves across off centre the snap ring wont go in

When it flips it turns basically inside out. Excess clearance or pressure the cause

You'll find a new disc placed upside down on a flat bench will measure around 0.265" to the top of the centre fingers
Uses ones about .220-.230". Much less and they are no good and a loose fit
