SC Pressure plate spring

Well, par for the course, I took apart my pressure plate off of my '44 SC to free up the button and adjusting ring. It was a oily mess, so I was cleaning it (and my hands) with paper towels. One of the 3 springs hold the front to the back must have gotten in amongst the towels, and since I was burning sticks that had fallen over the winter, I decided to spruce up the shop. I went to reassemble the pressure plate, but could only find 2 springs. About 2 A.M, I woke up and figured out what had happened. Next morning, I took a magnet out to the burn pile, and sure enough, there it was. It's not as springy any more. I visited auto parts stores, a transmission shop, a small engine / chain saw parts dealer, 4 hardware store and can not find any springs that are anywhere close enough to work.
Does anyone know where a spring for this can be found??? Somebody probably has something somewhere, but so far, I can't find one...

PS... Does this type of thing only happen to anyone else, or is it just me.... Whatever I'm working on is NEVER as easy as it should be.........

I got a call from my Dad last night and he has come across one so I'll have it in a few days.

Thanks for the replys.

By the way, after I brought the tractor into my shop, I aired up the tires to 10 lbs so I could move it easier and the next day, one of the rears went down....... It just keeps getting better and better!!!! Wouldn't be bad if this was an isolated incident.....

Craig, When I start a project .. I just go straight to PLAN .. D or E .. first ones never turn out right so I have to try again... So don't feel along on doing the wrong thing...

I needed one for a neighbors SC a couple years ago. I had to buy a complete pressure plate on Ebay to get the springs. The Case part number comes up a larger spring that will not fit. Good Luck DK

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
