    Posies will sell you just a main leaf with a reversed eye.

    Posies does not list one in new catalog, I cannot believe nobody makes a 32 main Leaf Spring

    Posie makes the complete spring. I have never had them refuse to sell just a main leaf? Only costs a call to find out.
     
  9. While back; I called them about a 31-1/2" reversed eye main leaf for a front spring, said they do not sell a main leaf as a separate part; only as replacement for one of their springs. I said "Oh that's right, I need a replacement main leaf for my 1001 Posies spring". Ordered and in a short time I received my "replacement" main leaf.

  12. Before you get everything apart plan how you are going to get it back together. The standard spring spreader doesn't work with reversed eye springs unless you get a little creative.

    Don't know if they have a pattern but St Louis Spring in St Louis Mo can build about anything you would want.

    1. a veteran died today

    I have a main leaf for a "32, you can reversed the eyelids the usual way, (draw picture on the floor, use big hammer and two pieces of 2x4's) put it back together one leaf at a time, works for me, probably have to shorten or leave out second leaf.
