The first step required is to make certain the spring is the correct length. There are numerous lengths available and it is easy to mix up with shorter ones.     I have springs of different lengths and I believe it should be near 34 inches long.  Other comments on this?       remember   Pi x Diameter.   With the correct length I have never had a problem rolling a hooked spring on using a couple of large screw drivers as shown in the You-tube.

Hook the ends together and roll it on using some vise grips to keep it in place while doing so would be my plan.

Hello All,

How in blazes do I install the large spring that sits in the outer groove of 300 brake drums?

No can stretch. Gotta be a method. Are the new ones as ornery?
