Athena rd

Took apart athena rd to clean, and now having a puppy trying to put back the tension back into the pivot point. Any ideas ?. Is there a particular sequence ?. And how are the spring holes on the inside of the body supposed to line up. Any diagrams or site to go too...Thks

Are you talking about Campy Athena Componant? If so Brake lever or Caliper? Take a picture of how you are assembling it from the from the front and back and I'll see if I can tell what you are doing wrong. It sounds like you probably have the spring installed wrong if it is a Caliper your having trouble with.

It's the rear derail. The mainspring to the body where it goes on to the hanger on the frame, Where it pivots. You have to build tension into it and then lock it down with a c-ring (which broke yesterday), but which holes and what direction. I'll try to get some pics...thks in advance
