In " The Service and Overhaul manual for the AJS and Matchless Single Motorcycles " covering 1958 to 1964, by F. Neill, there is the following fork spring data for the heavyweight scrambler model CS ('62 ) :
P/N 016782 ; Free length, 12 -3/4 "; wire gauge, .212".
The data for the CSR : P/N 021790 ; Free length, 11- 1/4" ; wire gauge, .222".
For interest sake, the length given for the Heavyweight touring model is 11.90",wire gauge .212", and for Heavyweight sidecar model, length,12-3/4, wire gauge .222".
Buffer spring data for all models, except 350cc Trials ; P/N 022079 ; Free length , 2-25/32; wire gauge,.192".
This may be of some help.
