Spring System Assembly



SS1 Place a hitch pin in one end hole and slide Spring Pipe Axle SS1 into one of the Spring Axle Bearings BF8.

Slip the Lower Extension Springs onto the ale and feed the free end into the other BF8 bearing and retain with the second hit pin.

Hook the top loops of the lower extension springs to the “J” hooks on the Bottom Spring Mount Bar F3.

Hook the Upper Extension Spring to the Spring Mount Bracket SS5 on the tower then stretch it to attach to the “J” hook on the Spring Mount Post F2.

Cut List:

SS2 Hook Bolt, Round End, 5/16” x 4”, (3) (Purchased)

SS3 Extension Springs (3) 1.5” x 11.5” x 0.135” (Purchased)

SS4 Humpback (Hairpin Hitch pin) Retaining pins (2), .156 wire, 3/4”

SS5 Spring Hook Bracket:

Cut 16” of 1/4” x 1.25” for the Spring Hook Bracket (SS5). Drill a 5/16” hole for the 4” Round End Hook Bolt (SS2). Bend to form the “J” shape. The length allows bending for tension adjustment as desired.

Drill 3/16” through-and-through holes 2” from each end of the pipe to accommodate the hunchback hitch pins (SS4) inside the frame.
