The "new" rear spring I found for my roadster had an extra leaf in it, so today I made new clips to fit it with the extra spring removed. On the right is a clip that was on the spring. Looks home made to me.
Those look great. I am not sure but you might need to add the retaining tab in the center to keep them in there rightful spot.
Here you go Steve, my tab cutter, not pretty but works! KGB
Steve -- If you have a big press, you might be able to press a "dimple" into them. That should serve the same purpose as the tab, even if it's not 100% correct.
No dimple needed here. This is for tapered springs. The bolt goes through a curled leaf end.
Oh yes............ I lost my head for a second.
Ford used a thin 1/4-20 HEX nut for those bolts, 1/2" across the flats. They used that nut in a number of places on T's right up to the end.
