in the process of doing a full restore of a gottlieb oklahoma..at the moment have rebuilt the twin roto target units.

how do you guys go about replacing the springs? have new springs from pbr but they are such a pain to get on the unit.

any tips?

When I rebuilt a roto target it took a couple beers and lots of swearing to get the springs back on. I've heard that spring hooks make spring installations easier.

If they need replacing, I do it while I have the roto unit disassembled on the bench. There are just the two on the ratchet arms, and then the one longer return spring. Don't recall them being any trouble though - they're pretty accessible. Are the ones on Oklahoma set up differently?
