Do you really need one? What if you don't use one?

I would say most of them are broken not long after their put in. If it's used for heavy work like plowing it will usually be broke in short order. All it really does is ease the clutch in a little softer so you don't get that jerking take off when the clutch is let out. Once the clutch is out it really has no function. I have run some of mine with broken teaser springs for yeas at a time. If you've no other reason to tear into the driveline and you can live with it I say leave it alone till you do something that requires at least some disassembly of the driveline.

OK thanks for your input. I actually did break it when I was plowing. I disassembled the drivline to replace the roll-pins, and add a new clutch shaft, so I think I'll put it back togather in preperation for the snow.

Thanks.

2 good quality lockwashers in place of the teaser spring will work just as good and last forever.

Well, I installed the clutch shaft with the 2 lock washers, and a heavier spring. Once it was running, I let the clutch out in 2nd gear, and she popped a little wheelie! I'm very happy with the results, it's much more grabby, I can't wait to do some work with this fun tractor.

3.5 hp briggs valve spring will work if you cut it to length.They are a tad bit heavier to.
