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!
