      Re: shotgun spring

      Me too. I have several shotguns running with one spring.

      All the spring does is keep pressure on the cam follower in contact with the cam.

      As Bill says, PM helps.

        Considering the potential damage that may occur I'd rather replace the inexpensive inner spring in my time, not down time.

        My opinion.

            Re: shotgun spring

            you are referring to the shotgun for the rake? (sorry, there are so many different names for so many different parts) If so, to exactly which spring are you referring to?

              Yes. The shaft for the rake trip latch assembly has an inner and an outer spring. They're discussing removing only the inner spring.

                In over 20 years, the only spring to go bad with that was the little spring that closes that latch after it was tripped

                      Re: shotgun spring

                      I've replaced maybe 10 or 15 in the past 30yrs. In my observations of the rake assembly, including the Rake Latch or "Shotgun" as some prefer to call it. Its usually related to a bad or incorrectly adjusted Shock Absorber on the Rake Shaft Assembly. But in saying that,as with all good things over time they just simply seem to wear out or break,and usually with the worst of timing...

                        Re: shotgun spring

                        Most of the time the innser springs can wera into from the larger and smaller spring coils overlaping at the bottom of shotgun. the overlaping over time can breal the spring. this happens worse in centers where the sdhotguns are adjusted shorter. (less area for spring when shotgun is collasped)
                        The overlaping also causes the rake to drop very slow the last few inches of the drop.
