Removed it from the frame... messed with what appears to be the spring thing... *bleah*

I never had any problem with 70/80's suntour/shimano stuff. it's my first Campy project.

Can anyone offer any guidance/documents/etc?
contact me thru e-mail/PM
thanks
Perhaps you can find a schematic here:

From your description, it sounds like your spring need to be turned one more time - not an easy task, but not impossible either. I'm not sure exactly which year/model you have, but as I look up into the bottom of a Nuovo Record, I see six full turns of the spring wire with the seventh pass leading to the horizontal loop that rests on the body to give it tension.

Good luck with it.
