This unit has two springs, each in its own case. The first spring is easy, the lid just pops off and the spring can be removed. In order to get to the second spring it seems that the central shaft most somehow come apart, so I can get the first spring case out of the way. How??

There is a hole in the arbor directly across from the pin that holds the first spring in place. Does this provide some sort of way to get it apart or do I simply just get medieval with it and beat it apart with a hammer?

It looks suspiciously like there might be an Allen set screw in the hole but with that lighting it is hard to tell for sure.

Here is a link to part 1 of a 5 or six part you tube video that is VERY good and informative. I hope it helps. It sure did me.
