I have a similar question / Issue. I just rebuilt the whole stand assembly and you can see that the tab that the spring attaches to is supposed to stop the stand by hitting the big casting mount when the stand is retracted, but my stand hits the foorboard mounting bracket and will not allow it to fully retract into the full up position. Is this the same issue you are having?

That spring bracket is the early style. It was replaced by the one in the upper right of this picture which keeps the spring centered and the tension correct.

hi rubone,
i know all parts and i build the part from the first picture self.(45 Jiffy stand part 001.JPG) but only from pictures!!!!! and now i doesnt know, is it the right size or a little bitt smaler or whatever. the spring fits and the jiffy in the workposition is okay. but i doesnt know, wich is the right position when its up?
just in time the downwards end from jiffy hits the left floorboard sidebar. i think it must stop before! is this true?
thatsway i hope for a picture with jiffy in "not-working-position", but i search in the whole internet and find nothing.
thanks to all

Hey guys...similar problem here and I can't seem to figure out whats up. I was doing some quick mock up to see how the Jiffy works and something doesn't add up for me. The stand is hitting the bottom of the rocker/footboard arm. Based on all the diagrams and pictures I've seen the jiffy looks to be correctly installed but it sure doesn't seem to work correctly so clearly I've done something wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Here are some pics.

Put the later spring bracket that Rubone shows under the kickstand nut. Attach the spring as shown. Doc

Thank you for the reply Doc. Would you mind explaining how changing that bracket would stop the jiffy from hitting the support arm? Without any bracket on whatsoever it still hits. It almost seems like the reproduction jiffy has to be bent wrong. I can’t think of any other logical reason why.

Since It is a reproduction jiffy stand, (maybe from Tedd's?), It may be bent wrong. One thing about the newer spring bracket, it will center the spring and when attached as shown, will hold the jiffy stand at the correct angle & pressure when in an upright position. You may have to rebend it once you get the engine/trans/primary in the frame, with the side plates attached. Doc
