Hello people,

I'm looking for dimensions of the spring attaching the head light bucket to the chassis.
I do not know untill which VIN number these where installed but I've seen them on a Pre-L and my PB has the brackets but no spring.

On the parts list at for example Wilkinson they do not show.

Thanks for the help,

...I'm hoping that it is 5.5" long, 0.75" outside diameter and 0.120" wire...Since this looks a lot like the spring used on Mangusta US models (that I am, amazing coincidence, looking for the last 2 days...).  Getting a spring of the same qualities you are looking for is a lot harder than it seems it would be, especially when the spring rate is very high (I think over 50lb/inch...) or extended hook....Good luck, if you find a match let me know where I can buy one. Such stiff wire, I will always wonder how mine was kinked like this...! Lee

Hey Lee,

thanks for your dimensions, that spring looks very similar than that of the Pantera. Strange kink indeed!

Could you include just one more measurement, from the last coil to the end of the long end?

I'm looking into making them myself from SS spring wire. If I succeed I'll let you know!

Thanks again, Löwe

Lowe, I measure 21mm from the top of the spring body to the inside edge of the hook on the short side---and about 75mm on the long side. That puts the body of the spring about 36mm. I think 5.5"/140mm is a fair dimension measuring to the center of each hook. Good luck ! Lee
