omega clutch spring

Hello everyone, I am not trying to be repetitive since this topic has been discussed in depth ,however, for mounting the omega spring why cant I keep the long and short levers in place then take a C clamp compress the spring and place it on the correct mounting points. This technique works until I hook up the clutch cable and the cable pulls the lever forward the spring snaps and then there is no load on the omega spring . I am confused any ideas? thank you in advance

It sounds like you have searced this already - have you read this thread that I started years ago (one of the posts describes how to mount the spring - no need to compress it at all) :

yes very helpful thread the problem I am having is once I position the spring then attach the clutch cable the clutch pedal pulls the spring forward and then the spring loses tension. Maybe travel is to far on long lever?Thank you for that older post and any advice

Try preloading the arm with the adjuster screw all the way in and the return spring on it too. It looks like that would keep the omega tight till you can adjust the cable correctly...

OK, you need to keep the clutch pedal from moving forward (down) while you attach the cable at the transmission end - you can tie it to the seat rails with rope, tie-dwon straps etc . . . this is the procedure for re-mounting the cable . . . maybe this will solve your problem?

yes I keep the clutch pedal positioned up with a block . When I use the pedal(push down on the clutch pedal) or try to actuate, the lever is pulled forward and the omega spring swings forward and is in the groove area of the tranny but then no tension on the spring? The long lever pulls the omega spring forward(towards the front of car) via the clutch cable and then the omega spring snaps and has no more tension?My car is back together after engine work new clutch and all new actuating components . Maybe the fork is not pushing on the pressure plate ? ugh or there is to much movement on the long lever ?not sure I understand backing out bolt on smaller arm and its affect

With the clutch cable disconnected will the omega spring snap back against the heat exchanger like this?

Actually it pulls the spring forward(towards the front of car) and relieves the pressure . The spring then falls to the ground sorry i will try to post some pics tonight.

Pictures of your set-up would be good - you must have something "wrong" for what you describe to be happening . . .

Hey guys I figured out what I was doing wrong. I did not position the clutch fork shaft and fork up closely to the pressure plate(with the small lever) after placing omega spring into position. Da Thankyou for all youre responces and trying to help me.

I tried the c-clamp approach this evening and it worked great. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm having what I think is the same brain block. I have installed my omega spring, but it is not taut and the arm is well forward of where I imagine it should be at rest or clutch pedal out. I found a picture of what it should look like here via searching, but I don't know how the spring gets into that relationship.

I even have the manual, but I just don't understand what to do when it says "press back release lever with a suitable tool until release spring passes top dead center point and lever snaps against sop on console."
I feel like the answer is staring me in the face, but after over an hour of this, I'm seriously doubting my intelligence.
Here's several photos from about 8" away (as far as I could hold the cell phone).

What you need to do is read post #7 of this thread over and over and try to visualize what needs to be done (and then try to do it exactly as described) . . . this is one of those things that will blow your mind how easy it goes on when you get everything oriented correctly . . .

HELP - Omega Spring
Thank you. I was a heartbeat away, I just didn't understand that I needed to forcibly lever the arm back, ignoring the rotation of the omega spring until it suddenly slips into the rearward position. Not intuitive, but as you say, easy after the light bulb goes off.
