    So I finally got a day off from work to wrench on the 60. I put it all back together but ran into one problem. I guess it's pretty much guaranteed not to go unhitched whenever you work on your rig. well I was putting the short side rotor back on and it wouldnt go all the way in for some reason. So I took my rubber mallet and gave it some taps. Well it still wouldnt go in. So I popped it out and it turns out the spring that is in the grease seal somehow popped out. My question is, do I need a new grease seal or can I just place the spring back in place?

    If the rotor is still hard to get on use the hub nuts to put it on the rest of the way. .
