Remove the screw that is holding both springs to the armature bar. First, put the screw back m the hole in the rear spring and start it into the armature bar. .Make sure you still have both wishers on the screw, on top, above the springs. Nest, put on the front spring, placing it on top of the rear spring and under both washers. This rront spring will just slide on the screw. Tighten linger tight. Before replacing assembly take this opportunity to buff your contact screw, removing any pits.
To replace the assembly, slide the rear spring under the loosened rear screw, making sure the rear spring is back all the way against the screw and under both washers Tighten finger tight.
On liner tips there will be one groove. On shader tips there will be several separate grooves, like railroad tracks. On the round tips, usea round Swiss needle file to smooth it back out. On flat shader tips and your one needle liner tip, use a square Swiss needle file. If you have to file a tip to get it to stop splattering, be sure to clean it out good with a brush. Sterilize it before you use it again
The splattering could come from one or all of the above. If one thing doesn't work, try something else, until you figure it out, if none of the above worked, change the needle bar to see if that helps. If that doesn't work, check the springs and replace them if necessary. Sometimes one side of a spring will break where it's being held by the screw. It's hard to spot.
The hard part is, if it starts splattering in the middle of a tattoo, you have to be able to figure it out, or continue with a splattering machine. This will take a lot longer to do if you don't know what's going on and your nerves will be shot from anxiety dealing with it.
If the lube is tight in the framejaws, the slot gap will have to be widened. This can be done by dismantling the machine and clamping the frame in a vice and sawing through the gap with two fine tooth hack saw blades. Screw the coils to the frame base and use a straight edge to see whether the centers of the coil cores are in a direct line with the center of the tube hole and the center of the spring hanger. If one or both are slightly off center, loosen screw and insert a thin piece of copper shim on the low side under core. Tighten screw and see how it looks: you may have to shift shim several times to get it right.
