overall length: 5 1/4"
length from flap end to spring coil: 3 1/8"
spring section: 1 1/8"
20 turns in the spring section
length from crank end to spring coil: 1"
wire diameter: .05"
width of spring section is just over 1/2"
the hook on the short end is the same width as the spring section
the hook on the long end is about half the size of the other
I still need to assemble my longblock and had the spring in a box. I
really had a hard time finding an original one. Some people use one
from a FLAPS. I checked into having some made to the original specs,
but it would be expensive!
