I have a 76 ciao and I'm having a good deal of trouble getting the spring for the seat swingarm back in place. It would appear as though I have to compress the spring extremely tightly, put it in its place, and quickly bolt it together before everything flies apart. Trouble is, I can't compress that spring, and I haven't found a spring compressor to fit the job. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Just to clarify, were talking about the big spring found under the front of the rack(has a plasti c cover over it). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
