Took my plenum apart to paint and clean it as part of doing my valve cover gaskets and I’m struggling to get the springs back in the right spot. Wondering if I have a bad spring or have something positioned wrong.

Here’s a video of what I’m running into.


Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Here is a couple of shots of the springs on my 94. It looks like the spring is not seated correctly. Mine does not have the play yours does.

thanks for the pics. yeah - that's looks like it's in the right spot, but the long part of the spring just flops down into that slot on the plate vs. keeps tension at the top like yours does. wonder if the spring lost it's shape and i need a new one.
