    It's not the reversing that makes it "grow", it's the de-arc.

    Today I took all of your advice and reversed the eyes myself with a press. Took about 30-45 minutes and was no big deal. Thanks HAMBers.

    Evidently DeucemanLtl hasn't read the article. Or taken some before and after measurements.

    But I suppose you could reverse one and keep the eyes the same, but there's no way to de arch one and keep the same Eye to Eye
     
  6. But then the arc isn't the same.

  7. Yes I know, it's a little poofy.
    Then you need to de arch it to get the same arc. And as we all know de arching a spring makes it bigger in the eye to eye dimension.
