Finally, I'm paranoid. I run a chain through the spring, after it's
compressed, incase something decides to slip or let go. Also, I
bought two sets of spring compressors, and I typically use three
compressors, instead of a pair, to provide more redundancy. Working
on cars would not be as much fun without my hands or fingers.
Spings ? ---and danger ? right up my alley.(Hagars).
There are two types of spring chickens ----- those who wound up in ER and those who did NOT.
Then there are the ----"Victor Rattrap big toe" gang -----yes I am a member of both.
I first came face to face with a killer spring ---in about 1945 . A wind up Phonograpf
remember ? 78 ?. I took it apart without running spring down.
So NOW ? I am really nifty around sprigtime. ----------My Rabbit spring time ? ---
easy as apple pie. Remove without compressor --installing completely compressed.
Then cutting the "Straps". ------------NO PROBLEMO.
Doyt Echelburger -----IF a spring is containing say 1 HP --hour ---and you let it rust ?
where does that 1 HP -hour go ?.-----ok ok I know this is simple minded. It is bound
to set of Mark Shepherd.
PS : yes SIR I made a DIY compressor --from readyrod ---half inch NC. and splicing
nuts. ---Worked like hot shit --but very slow.
