Hi Mike,
If you want to give me a call, I will be happy to explain exactly how to put the tail spring in.

How are you guys floxing the tail spring in?

My plans aren't showing how far the spring goes into the tail.
I'm going to install a tube and then a 5/8' spring steel rod inside that.
How far in should I install it?

Looks like a big hole in there,  is it completely filled with flox?

How did you get the flox in there, a syringe/ pump of some sort?
Or did you "spoon" it in and then allow it to squeeze out when the spring was inserted?
