stupid spring in a typhoon

Okay, so my nasty typhoon doesn't want to work correctly. It works fine on pump, but on semi, the trigger doesn't want to go all the way back to the forward position. I took off the grip, and low and behold, there is this piece of metal, I guess it is a spring, that is floating around in there. In the pics I have it sitting on the trigger frame. Any clue on where it goes. I fiddled with it for an hour and gave up. A pic of it in the right place would be great.

That is the switch return spring. It should be wrapped around the pivot screw and hook on to the bellcrank.

If you are in the USA,, send me a IM with your address. Ill send you a spring and bell crank since that one looks like its melted.

Well, Craig sent me a new spring, new bellcrank and a screw, which I assume is a pivot screw, though the one on the gun was about half the length.

Spent 2 hours struggling, and searched all over MCB. Still can't figure out this trigger/switch return spring.

Anyone have a picture of what it should look like on the gun, using this setup??

Any help is appreciated.

RED METHOD:

See the set screw in the middle of the frame just in front of the 4-way? Behind that set screw is a tiny hole. Slide the spring down into that hole and lock it down... You may have to bend the spring to fit correctly..


BLUE METHOD

The spring wraps around the extra brass busing that I sent ya..


The screws have always been too long... once we get them in there we cut them off with pliers.. This keeps the screw from backing out without the worry of loctite getting into the bushing.

One of the two springs I sent is a little softer.



Hope this helps.

well, the red method fixed it, the third time I tried it.

Thanks so much Craig. By the way, when I took off the frame, I suppose something happened and now my safety will not stay in. it just slides out. I know there is something that goes in one of the two holes on top of the frame. What is this part I must have dropped someplace?

Check the trigger adjustment screw on the top of the frame. The trigger itself keeps the safety from falling out. If the trigger is allowed to move too far forward, then the safety will slide out.



There is also a ball and safety spring that helps keep it in place.

Ah, I have the ball, but no spring. Go figure, it is probably in my carpet someplace. Is it a common size I can pick up from ACE?

Nope,, those springs are hard to find.. Cut a small piece of oring and use it like a spring.
