i took the cover off to clean out behind the diaphram while i had some other parts of the carb off for rejetting, cleaning.  one bad part about doing maintenance with the carb on the bike....if a part falls off it lands in some part of the engine that is apparently a black hole.

the tev spring seems to have wedged itself somewhere i think i can hear when i roll the bike back and forth but can't seem to see, feel or find.  FRICK.  i managed to rejet the carb with no issues and then i lose a frickin spring.

anybody know of any special hiding places to look?  again, i THINK i hear it rubbing something when i roll the bike to and fro, but cannot see anything.  have a new one on order, but don't figure it's a good idea to let stuff rubbing on other stuff down there.

A trick I often use when working above places that can act as a black hole for small parts is to cover up those places with towels.  I also prefer working on a large piece of terry cloth as well because little pieces don't roll as far on cloth like that.

I can really relate to what you are saying.  I have probably spent several hundred hours of my life looking for tiny lock washers, pins, springs, o-rings, etc.

IDK if this it it, but there is a opening behind the starter on that side of the bike. You might want to run a wand magnet around in there to see if you can come out with the spring. I have lost two speedometer cable washers and a jelly bean down there.

good hunting

turns out it did fall into the 'jellybean zone'.  between the starter and the pulley eventually wedging itself behind the pulley.  i didn't see where it went initially because i was trying to catch the cover as it sprung off with the last screw.

so....as with most of posts, let this be a cautionary tail to you guys doing anything with your tev.....BE CAREFUL with the spring loaded cover and the spring loaded spring as well!

new one should be here friday.
