Got the slipper seals replaced. Now I'm wondering how to get the garter springs back in. Piano wire to lift their noses when they catch?

I don?t recall having any great difficulty, though it?s probably been a dozen years now. Try rolling the spring as you insert it. Rotate it so the cut end of
the wire follows, not leads.

Thinking about this a little more it seems that I may have inserted both ends of the garter simultaneously and sent one end around the coupler barrel to
the right and the other to the left. When fully inserted the middle of the garter spring would be visible through the hole in the casting.

Thanks! I got 'em. it wasn't easy. May have been easier if this wasn't #1 coupler. The garters were catching in the hole on the opposite side of the coupler body. I had to use a small flat blade screwdriver through the drain nipples to push the end of the garter until it lined up with the groove again. All the while was exerting a little pressure on the opposite end of the garter and holding a flashlight so I could see a bit of what I was doing with the screwdriver in the bore.
