Well, there was your first mistake, messing with things, when you have no idea what your doing...on the other hand, that is a good way to learn. I know thats how i learned, when i was younger, messing around with parts on my floyd-rose type trems, and thinking i knew what i was doing, but i didnt, and i ended up having to figure it out myself. As for your dillemma, i have an american fat strat, that i rarely use, but i never even tried to fiddle around with setting it up right, i just put 2 more springs in the back, and tightened the hell out of the screws, essentially making a hardtail fat strat, that may interested you, it will also make it more stable, and less likely to go out of tune. Some people block the trems, but i this way does it in less time, and does the same thing. So unless you really need to have the trem float, you might wanna try that.
