    From memory, if the spring is fully compressed, and locked in place, then installed on the motor. When the spring is released and locked again, the shaft will have moved maybe 1/2".

    They may not be designed to have the nut bottomed out on the step.

    Good progress Steve.
    I will be interested in seeing how the fork dampers work. Does anybody have experience with them?
    I tried to buy a set for my 29, but they were out of stock.

    However I think the 20 amps would be too much for your wiring.
