Default IH Famous 3hp vertical

I am in need of the flat spring that goes between the igniter trip and push rod for exhaust. Is there anyone who reproduces these? If not, does anyone have a spare? Thanks Matt.

It took a while to get back in the swing of things after mom died. Then dad didn’t want to do much ether so I waited on him. Mom made every show we went to and loved every minute of it. So it took a little to get going. Hope to get to see you some this year at some shows Pat.

I made one for mine out of the recoil flat spring out of a mower pull starter

I've used the broke springs from "Loggers Tapes" for the same thing. They were a make over of a flyrod reel. Matt. I'm sure if you'd pay some friends a visit, we'd come up with something. Hint, Hint.

I’ll tell you what, next week is out but the week after I will drive down to Brookhaven Ms and pay you a visit. I’m sure after almost two years of not seeing each other we can find something to talk about. Thanks for that idea to Pat.
