Hi folks,
My 1929 ohv 500 Sloper clutch played up during a ride yesterday; when I opened up the cover, bits of clutch spring fell out !!

Can anyone suggest a source for replacement springs ? It is a 6 spring clutch; apparently the springs are 1 3/4 inch long and seem to be about 7 mm o.d. Haven't got them out yet as I need to make as suitable c spanner to undo the centre nut, so I've estimated the size based on the broken bits.

Cornucopia in Germany have them, but will end up really expensive due to their minimum order requirements.

Any suggestions welcomed.
Cheers,
Bevan

Fairly sure the 6 spring B series springs are the same or close enough
