Default Re: Grundig TK9 (TK12) Unidirectional pulley springs failure. Expert help needed plea

Thanks so much for your responses. I have been inspired by ideas and am trying another option of straightening in a vice the bad portion of the spring, then under tension rewind the bad part of the spring by hand whilst clamping the axle in the lathe. I think if I manage to straighten part of the spring I might be in luck. If this fails then I will try cutting the bad part but am afraid it might not be enough spring left to respectively connect the two adjacent parts together.
I attack a photo of my attempt so far.
