Default Re: Spring for early 28 starter switch

I was in a Sears tool store north of Chicago, and they had the best spring assortment I've ever seen. I found the perfect match there and posted the information here some years ago. A search might turn up the information, otherwise I'll have to find my spring again. Since you have the cover and switch, I'd take them to the hardware store and find a spring that fits. You might get lucky.

This one works well, but you have to buy a package of 10. I started another thread on this same subject yesterday. Sorry to be redundant. This ground has already been plowed!

Twice plowed makes for a better crop.
