Default Help! V-Maching a Diana 48

Hi Guys,

I'm wondering if any of you might have some pointers on where I'm going wrong here.

I've just installed a V-Mach kit in a Diana 48 side lever, and whilst it's certainly shooting smooth as... it's also way below power.

I've followed the instruction to the letter, and:

2x preload washers = 9.3ft/lbs
3x preload washers = gun won't cock

I've noticed that in addition to the metal washers supplied, there's also a nylon ring, which I think might go at the spring guide end.

Ideally I'd like to get it to ~11ft/lbs.

Anybody have any ideas as to where I'm going wrong?
