top cover spring

What do I put under/between top cover extractor spring, I have heard a penny washer, it seems that bolt my links and cloth belts are not feeding correctly, they do not get pushed in, or they get crooked in the feedway. Thanks, Jerod

just bend the extractor spring a bit by hand

your problem is most likely with too stiff of a belt holding pawl spring (the one on the trunnion that is held in place by the split pin)
its a pretty common problem - try searching for this on this forum

start by replacing that spring with one of much weaker rate and if that doesnt solve the problem, then come back and ask again
