Epay will be your best bet, lots of used parts there or you could probably find the springs at any hardware store. By the way  :welcometogttalk:  and   :wewantpics:

Epay is Full of PK parts.  Brake springs usually on there and many other things. Search with Economy Power King as words, about 300 items should show up.  Fella in Texas name Franks might be on there for new little things like that, and others. Lots of parts at most tractor swap meets also, just gotta get to shows.

glgrumpy gave you a good suggestion  , you might find some items at the Pa Plow Day right in your own back yard  or if you don't mind the 2 1/2 drive to my area we have our flea market  in May in Jacktown Pa

The guy  Texas is Jerry Frank, not Franks and he actually prefers to deal direct instead of through ebay.  Here is his contact info.  He'll probably have what you need.

Looking for any manual that might help me find the right way to install the outboard brake shoes on my 1963 Jim Dandy with hand brakes.I should have taken pics so it would help me put things back together again.I haven't worked on it for a while,now I'd like to get it done.Also I'm looking for a air cleaner assembly for it. It's a nine hp Briggs&Stratton.

                                                      

                             Thank You,M.LeVan

There's a pretty good picture  showing the Jim dandy's  brakes near the end of the manual ( after the Power King section )
