Does anyone have any experience with the CB Mag 44 heads? I'm installing heavier springs and once the "old" springs were out of the heads and on the table, they were much shorter than the new springs.
If you place a new stock VW spring, a new heavy duty spring and one of the used springs that came in the 44's on the work table. all side by side, the old spring from the head is nearly 0.75 inches shorter than the others. Did Mags come with special shorter springs, or has the spring lost it's temper and no longer returns to "stock" height?
The heavy duty and old Mag spring compress to the same amount before binding, but uncompressed the height difference is huge.
Any experience with this, any help. The heads are old/used swap meet items, but don't look at all abused.
