Does anyone know of a good supplier for springs? I have couple good hardware stores here but I can't find just the right length and tension/compression rate for my use. They will be for my David Bradley walk behinds. I have a couple originals to go by.

 

Thanks

Are these extension or compression?
The place won't help (out of business) but the one time we needed something that had to be "exact" dad and I went and they measured it. Diameter of wire, pounds to extend 1", etc. I found this place http://www.diamondwi...om/catalog.aspx that has a branch in Taylors SC.

McMaster Carr has springs. I've measured and bought some governor springs to replace sold NOS parts before from them.

They are for a David Bradley walk behind reverse. One is for the mechanism on the trans-axle, the other is for the control rod on the handlebar.

Reverse use Snapper spring.
