I messed up my guide rod by putting the spring in backwards. Should I get a new guide rod mine has scratches all over it?

Just polish it up a bit with some 320 grit emery cloth followed by some 600 grit. It'll be fine.

Jamamatic, your post leads me to believe that you actually did put the spring on the CORRECT way!!!

The small, tight end goes on first, and if there was a burr on the end of the coil, it would have scratched your guide rod.

SMALL END FIRST!
