Bendix spring broke(big Bang) and the replacement ends on the new spring do not match the old spring or the bolts on the shaft. Do I have the correct spring. The catalog part number and part align..!? Thanks, dave

How do they not match, size, placement? Did you get new tabbed washers? Who did you get the spring from? If the holes for the bolts are larger then chances are it's a Model A spring.

Send me an email and I can send you a PDF copy of the Bendix Eclipse catalog with complete details on the Model T and other Bendix drives/springs/bolts and keepers.

Mark, The spring ends are parallel on the new and are off set on the old. Have always had great luck with Langs. This is a 1919 T and looks like an original. Have tabbed washers that were on the system and the bolts seem to fit.

You will also need to be sure you have the correct bolts with the thin heads.

They should be parallel. Over the years the spring gets twisted out of alignment or the wrong spring was used sometime in the past. You should never reuse the old tabbed washers if you can help it. The tab starts fracturing at the bend when you put it on and take it off. If you got it from Lang's the holes for the bolts should be the correct size.

Ron; in the picture you posted above it also seems that the thread length on the shaft for the REPOP's is shorter is that correct or is that an optical illusion?

The bendix spring should look like this.

Previous comments about the bolts and tabbed washers are correct, never re-use the washers!
