Does anyone see any problem that may come with this idea ?
I used a section from other spring to get a 110 lb from old one Thank you Lorenzo
Lorenzo, I see that as a patch-up, the sort of thing you do when you have to. I would be more comfortable with a spacer cut from heavy tubing rather than the open coil from an old spring.
I would rather spend the dollars on a new spring, given the amount of work needed to fix it again if it goes wrong.
Just me looking to save work.

I see it as a patch up. Sorta like using an original mag coil ring on a rebuild that has most of the insulation missing or getting to the point of just plain rotten. Spray it with varnish. It may work but.........
Going by the trouble you have to go through to tare the engine down or whatever I would use a new one and be done with it. Put it all together and then a few miles later it fails? I wouldn't like that.
That's not the way the spec works. You can't add a spacer to achieve the 110lbs at height with the spacer. You have to measure the compression of the spring itself. Adding a spacer may also cause spring breakage and/or interfere with clutch release.
I'd spend the $28.
Do you need bearings ,hehehe
Anyone ever tried this part on their spring ??? does it work?
It's half the cost of new spring. It works great in the tool box. It's for a temporary roadside fix to get you home when your Turbo Slip or Jacked-Up clutch disks fail. If you already have it apart, put a new spring in it!
RV Anderson has new extra-boost springs available, which he uses in his Watts clutch kits. firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't see why you couldn't add a spacer to achieve the 90 lb required compression at 2 1/16". As mentioned above, a concern would be that you would loose spring travel. On the other hand, it takes very little travel to release the clutch. I think it would work fine.
I have new springs , its just an experiment on what if you did not have the option of new..
Old springs get smaller as they age ,so spring travel will be as if new
Thank you Richard
