As stated above I put a light chamfer on my pins as the sharp flat edge is what catches the spring and kills it. A light taper on the end of the sear pin that installs into the cage first helps pull the spring back in place if it moves. The sharp edge will just cut the spring.

Ah ha... that makes a lot of sense.....  I was thinking from the other side of the pond, per se...   LOL

What made it easier for me was that instead of using a rigid slave pin I used a piece of thin plastic tubing. I cut the correct length from a wd 40 bottle, you know the red straw the helps direct the spray. The small bit of flexibility seemed to make it a lot easier to install the lifter spring

The challenge is not with the slave pin, it is the sucker spring and the sear pin.
