how do you fit a Martin springy rest and tune it?

There are two ways you can install it. The first is to remove the lock-nut from the rest and thread it through the riser backwards till you have it set at the approximate centershot you want. Install the lock-nut from the opposite side of the sight window and lock it down.

The second way is to remove the spring with an allen wrench, screw it in like any rest of this type. Once it's protruding though the riser reinstall the spring and adjust the rest for approximate center shot.

For tuning I would refer you to Easton's Tuning Guide. This is a rest not often used today, but is used mostly by finger shooters (shoot around type). So you tune according to the release style you are using. The rest should come as shown, with three springs, each with a different stiffness. Using the proper spring in conjunction with playing with centershot you should be able to achieve a pretty good tune.
