Peavey wolfgang

I know this is probably not the place to ask this but what the hell . While changing strings on my peavey wolfgang EVH last night I accidently hit the tremlo arm of the bench and the floyd rose poped out from behind the pivot screws and is now sitting out over the top of the two pivot screws . I can`t seem to get it back down in behind the pivot screws . Remember the wolfie is not a floating bridge it`s not like my js1 it just pops down in easily . Do I have to take the pins out of the guitar to get it back in or is there an easyer way for I don`t want to mess with the action it was set up perfectly . Does anyone out there have any ideas .

Thanks guys

Re: Peavey wolfgang

take off the springs, undo them from the spring claw. Then get it where you want and reattach the springs

Thanks neptoes but now how do I get the springs to reattach to the spring claw . The tension is too great in the springs .

Re: Peavey wolfgang

Loosen the claw, attach the bridge/springs, tighten the claw == > resume normal operation

Re: Peavey wolfgang

If you want to bring it back to the exact spot, just use a marker and make a mark on the screws and a small mark on the wood so that you can bring it back to where it was by aligning the marks.

Re: Peavey wolfgang

You might try a pair of needle nose to grab the end of the spring & stretch it over the hook - that's how I do it & I never have to mess with spring tension - good luck

Angry Re: Peavey wolfgang

Thanks guys , even with screwing the spring clamp out as far as possible I still can`t do it by hand so I think I will have to invest in a pair of needle nose pliers .
