Title: Dual idler springs
Post by: RB-058 on April 12, 2020, 01:58:32 PM
Hi all,

The shaft from my dual idler spring seems to be slightly bent (they both have this issue). Is this normal? I've tried to find pictures or posts on this but can't find anything. Wondering what your experiences are and if I should fix it. I will post pictures of mine later on.

No, they should not be bent. Must of been overly abused in its post war life.
