Frank, thanks for checking it out. This is the info I'm looking for. I take criticism fine and follow direction well so anything helps. This is my first one so I'm glad you stopped in. I will take it down some more, not to late to do that.I want to apologize for not being with you sooner on this WIP. I feel I certainly may have been able to make some suggestions you may have wanted to use to make your progress a little easier.In fact, I feel badly about missing this opportunity to possibly being able to help out a forum member.Perhaps this may still be a chance to help out.
That relief on the leaf spring is not deep enough. Go down to about .060 and use a curve, avoiding any sharp corners on the bottom. As it is now it will be too stiff to push out of lock up.
