how do i know when the drive spring is at 0-ZERO winds - and is there a quick way to get it to said point, also which way holding the unit upwards parallel to my spine does it have to be turned?


thanks for any help in advance

I always pushed the spring up past the nut on the end of the spring and let it rest against my fingernail and let the spring spin until it was zeroed out. I know that might be hard to understand but go to the end of the spring where it pushes up the shaft and push it up with your fingernail on your thumb. Watch out it doesn't get the skin, and watch the spring zero out!

Let me know if I need to clarify, I'm studying for finals and taking a break at the moment. Brain is a little fried....

you should be able to push the end of the spring back behind the nut, and unwind it from there. It may not look like it is at the "no tension" position, because of its length, it still looks like its wound a little. Here are some pictures... Hope they help. If not, I can take some step by step pics...

First Picture: the end of the spring opposite that nut. If you stick something in there like a pen or something, it will help to unwind the spring.
Middle Picture: The spring itself. I'm assuming you were able to get the pod apart this far
Last picture, push the spring down past that nut to unwind it

we've been to that point, what we need to know is how one knows when the spring is at the 0 point

once it stopped unwinding pretty much by itself, consider it done.

edit: maybe give it a couple more turns, but it should unwind mostly under its own power. Its hard to tell because of the length of the spring, so give it your best judgement
