Re: Replacing Leaf Springs



Back in pre-history, Walthers had replacement leaf
springs. However they have not be offered for a decade or
so. I understand Precision Scale has replacement leaf
springs as part of their product line.

Hope it helps,

Subject: [STMFC] Replacing Leaf Springs

: Going through my hell-box I came across a pair of tender
trucks which had

another is on
: permanent vacation in a dense pile carpet.
: I can (and have) replaced coil springs for
freight/passenger car trucks,
: but where can I get or how can I make replacement leaf
springs that at
: least look plausible. I'm willing to replace every one if
necessary to get
: uniformity. FWIW, each truck uses 4 leaf springs, two on
each side, that
: are about .060"/1.5mm wide and it looks like it would be a
small major
: project to convert them to coil springs.
