Hi
After sage advice from posters. Plus Watching two You tube videos one on the stradic and bails and another by second chance tackle on bail spring types in spinning reels. Studying schematics. I was able to not only repair the bail but make it a lot smoother with Cal grease. Four things i learned the bail spring cannot be under load but in a neutral unloaded position, be sure the the bail side is on first and not too tight and the bail is not connected to the spring plate and also the bottom plate should be on to help hold spring seat. Push on gently,,,bingo. Tighten to allow no play check alignment of bail on each side to be sure its not bent (mine was which probably caused initial problem). Oh another bit of advice avoid Shimano service…they take your money and time and dont fix it.
