    The lil pin bit you can see poking outta the valve piece in the centre is the bit Thro meant will snapsnap or elongate as Lee said

    edit:
    i've tested it and turned the pulley wheels myself by hand without the cables attached... you can turn well past full open/close... you're just working against a decent amount of spring pressure...


    Works for me

    ^^ it opens up... basically you have the tab (for lack of a better word) on the pulley pushing against one leg of the spring, which has the other leg work against the actuator.

    Once the actuator gets to full travel, the wheel is pushing against spring pressure.

    Same for going the other way when it closes....

    Wheel turns spring, which in turn pushes against the actuator... once the actuator runs out of travel, you're working against spring pressure


    edit:
    I just had mine apart recently, and had a play with it to figure out how it all worked

    ahh you're talking about that spring. Can't remember how that one works when the valves hit full open.

    Once the valves are full open, they don't go any further, pulleys and all. If the servo wants to keep going it has the power to do so.
