Hi, recently tore apart my excal 2 for general cleaning and maintenance. When i tried putting the lower rod back in between the coil ears, it is tight as can be and has to be forced in there to the point where i'm sensing the ears may snap. Not sure how it got like this, my only guess is the plastic ears have a "memory" from being tightened down for so long. First few attempts I ripped a chunk of new rubber teardrop shape washers I just bought. Thought about a light coat of silicone grease but that probably wouldn't keep the coil tight and in position for too long.

You can get a typical circular o-ring and fit it in the recess.
