74These spacers are to be used to hold the spring inplace in the groove on the outside perimeter of theboot. As it will take both hands to stretch this springinto place, these spacers will prevent the spring frompopping out when you let go of it to use both handsto stretch it further around the boot.Begin by pushingthe spring down into the groove just forward fromwhere the boot contacts the front tub shell at aboutthe 12 o’clock position. While holding the spring inplace with one hand, use theother to tightly wedgethe spacer above it, betweenthe spring (in itsgroove) and the weight ring above it.7.Working to the right, push the spring down into thegroove. Once the spring has been installed about 90degrees around the opening from the first spacer,the spring will begin to get tight. Install another spacerat that point. Check the first spacer to make sure itstays in place.8.Continue working your way around until you reach180 degrees from the first spacer. Install the thirdspacer.9.The spring will be extremely tight now.Once you have gone more than half way around, thespring will be easier to roll into the rest of the groove.When you have the spring in place, make sure toremove the three spacers.10.Replace the boot extrusion back onto the duct andpull it up over the ridge on the duct near the top ofthe opening.Reinstall the clamp in such a way that the clampsits between the ridges on the extrusion and abovethe ridge on the duct.
