Question about Ridgid Rigid Tool 31030 24" Heavy - Duty Pipe Wrench - Cast Iron
Take out the sliding jaw. Use a hammer in conjunction with a punch or screwdriver that will catch the front edge of the flat spring. Alternate between the top and bottom of the flat spring. You'll get to a certain point where the coil will pop out. Go slow as to not lose this spring. You can toss it after using it to match up to the replacement parts. Check the flat spring against the new one to make sure they're somewhat the same size. The next part is tricky, almost like shimming or keying a lock. I use a piece of banding material (1/2" wide and long enough to extend through the channel with the coil underneath) to shim between the flat spring and coil spring. Gently knock the flat spring in and remove the banding material from between the coil spring. You're done. Reassemble the sliding jaw with knurled nut.
