I tried to locate an old thread on the KCA Forum that had some good discussion, hints and photos, to assist 'reinstalling a Krag trigger'.

I could find the thread title, but, there is some fatal error that prevents it being viewed.

Bummer ... it could help posterity!

BR,
I just tried to find my old Sporterizing Howto and could not find it. So these old threads have gone to the same place. For meaness i tried a Yahoo search and found part of the old thread in an archive. Photos were not there and thread was not complete. Last time i asked one of the Buts about it the old thread are still archived but they have not been able to make them fully accessible.

"sporterizing howto kca forum" This got me to the old partially archived thread in Yahoo.com search. Maybe you can at least find traces of it that way. Possibly you did not type it in exactly and were trying to find the wrong one and the later one is still available.

I had to google search 'Krag trigger install' to find old KCA content on the internet.

Local Boy had a good install method using a wrench that he altered for a lever.

I had a similar method using a drill-shank as a 'slave-pin' and an '03 tool as a lever to compress the sear-spring.

Local Boy made the observation that orienting the sear-spring, to take advantage of the bevel on its end, made it a lot easier to catch the compressed spring on the rear-edge of the receiver and push parts into position.
