I've been having real problems re-building my Left 2nd Gen (1999-2008) Campagnolo ergo lever.
Never had this problem before when rebuilding a right lever. Hope you can help!
Having stripped-down, cleaned and re-built most of the lever, I'm struggling with the last step: setting the correct tension on the flat coil spring EC-RE054.
There only seem to be 2 positions in which I can attach the coil spring to the central bushing EC-RE252.
I am finding that there is either too much tension (when attaching to the central bushing in the 4 o'clock position) or too little tension (when attaching to the central bushing in the 10 o'clock postion).
I have tried to show this problem in the following photos of my lever:http://www.flickr.com/photos/31859768@N06/sets/72157627589428794
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
I am facing this same problem in 2 of my left 2nd generation ergo levers ('99 Athena 9-speed and '04 Record 10-speed)
In my photo "Ergo 2" the index cog/cable holder (EC-RE314) will hold it's position in the low gear position when I apply pressure where the cable would push through. Would you expect everything to be OK when the cable is attached and hooked-up with the front derailleur on my bike?
i.e. does the ergo lever require the tension introduced by the front derailleur spring in order to function correctly?
I've read elsewhere that the flat coil spring EC-RE054 may not actually be required. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Thanks so much for your help!
