Here are the steps to change the engine springs and the tools we used.

Philips Screwdriver

Flathead Screwdriver

Needle Nose Pliers

Note: Not necessary to take off the lip seals unless you are changing them out as well.

Step 1 

Remove the engine assembly from the lower half of the unit.

Step 2

Remove the screws from the top of the engine assembly.

Step 3

Remove the connecting rod from the bar/engine assembly. Just give it a slight twist and it will feel like it unlocks and then pulls out.

Step 4 

Remove the center locking bolt with a flat head screwdriver.

Step 5 

Remove the plastic space bar

Step 6 

Remove the pump assembly to reveal the engine springs.

Step 7 

Remove the old springs. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry up and off then replace it with the new springs. NOTE: Pay close attention to the spring orientation before removing it so you get it back in the same way.
