I have the drawings, and need beehive springs made for our Model K. Does anyone know of a place that would make them. The intake and exhaust springs have different specs.
What’s the dis of the wire??
Have you tried to find something off the shelf that would suffice?
Otherwise, this company will do short runs.
Give these folks in Kentucky a call: Jones Spring Company.
It looks like they have one very similar on their home page.
Jones Spring, Lee Spring, and also Century Spring will make darn near anything you want. Give em a call and speak with a tech specialist, they will make you what you want.
I had similar springs made right here in Calgary for early Cadillacs. Contact me and I can provide the contact info or email me the drawing and I will try to get a quote before Christmas
And yes the Wire size is essential!!
Look up the web site for "Spring Team Inc" in Austinburg Ohio . They will quote you the cost of one spring or one million springs and you can do it on their web site. I live about 20 minutes from there so if you do need someone to visit them in person I can do that for you.
For my EMF we used PAC RACING SPRINGS the EMF springs were barrel shaped as well? Most NASCAR and F1 teams run there springs not cheap but very good

Thanks guys..... I'm sending these good ideas to Peter Fawcett who is doing the work, and we'll go from there. Thank you again for all the good information.
Pretty sure you want to specify a spring wire with good fatigue resistance like chrome vanadium. Biggest problem in getting custom valve springs made is the availability of relatively small quantities of the correct wire. You definitely don't want to use music wire for a valve spring. Make sure this is discussed with the spring shop.

I have a dozen T oilers for early T spindle bolts, and shackles, and all of them require new springs. Does any one make these? I'm well aware of Century Spring, but they need a minimum order of 300! Plus, I need a good pattern of that spring.
