I stopped by the spring maker and picked up the new spring for the "Float-a Ford" shock absorber. The one on the top is the new one.
This outfit has made various custom springs for me. One of the more interesting projects was 5 sets of new valve springs for 1912 or so Cadilacs (they are sort of "beehive" shaped)

It sure looks good! I like the "Float-A-Ford" shock absorbers, but don't see many of them.

Les: I have a complete set of Float a Ford shock castings but with some distorted springs and missing some springs. I would like a set of specifications for the springs and a supplier of the springs if you would not mind sharing. Thanks so much

Now, if only you could convince your spring maker to start making flat wire coil springs, we could have replacements for those worn-out rollers in our Hyatt roller bearings.

After all, it's really just a flat wound coil spring.

Flat wound coil spring; sounds like making a Damascus barrel for the old black powder rifles. We need to find a black powder rifle maker who can supply us with bearing parts.

Les- not to Hijack the thread, I've tried to get a hold of you a few different ways with no success. If you have a minute could you PM me I'd like to get a pair of rocker arm covers for a 16v Roof..

Don
Do you need both the short and long springs? I can take samples over to the spring maker if I have your quantity requirements
All
I have been in discussions about a possible alternative roller design using some state of the art technology

I have emailed you
