Need one OE early 66 leaf spring.
« on: September 20, 2018, 11:11:38 PM »
Would like to purchase one early 1966 original leaf spring, or at least the bottom leaf that has the part number stamped on it for 6S281. Stamped part number;  C4ZA5556S     237E5.
 Any help would be greatly appreciated as always.
Thanks, Karl
6s281

Me too!!!  I have been looking for them for over 5 years! Apparently, they are like a rare fine wine!

Good luck to us BOTH!

Hi Steve and Karl,

Here you go.  I have four C4ZA-5556-S leaf springs.  They are dated coded:

No. (1)  141E5 for May 21, 1965
No. (2)  148E5 for May 29, 1965
No. (3)  179E5 for June 28, 1965
No. (4)  295E5 for October 22, 1965

Now for the puzzle you will need to solve.  Pairs No. 3 and 4 are on a San Jose k-code fastback project.  The springs have been re-arched and restored.  The car is a February build and the October 22 date coded single is a decent date code for the car.  Of the four, it is the best, but could be a little later.

The No. 3 spring is too early for the car.  I'd prefer a trade for a later date code closer to the No. 4 October date code.

The No. 3 June leaf could work for 6S281.  The No. 4 leaf could work for 6S406, but a little tight on date code.

The No. 1 and No. 2 springs are too early for the February build K-code, but are a nicely matched set.  If I had to pick between matching dates and non-matching date pairs I'd go matching.

The other issue, it is getting cold up here in the Pacific NW and swapping out springs is not going to happen real soon if a swap can be figure out.

What do you think.  Can you solve this puzzle?

If I were to end up with a match pair December 1965, restore and ready to install, I'd also be a happy camper.  Is there a four way trade  out there?

Cory

Hey guys. I have a pair I donít want to sell but I might trade for different dates. I donít remember dates off top of my head but thought they were later 65. Will check on Monday night

Hi TLea,  I am interested.  I can hardly wait until Monday.  Do you know if they have been restored and re-arched or not?

Thanks

Cory

 OK they are matched set and both 345E 5.  Not gonna count the days but I think that would put them around the first to second week of December.  They have not been re-arched but I have never re arched bottom leaves before as I think unless they are really worn out they donít need it. They are original unrestored state and nice.  I would be open to swapping them for the May 65 set

Hi TLea,  Are you thinking just the bottom leaf or the entire assemblies?  It would be much easier just the bottom leafs.  It would be an easier swamp for me to put into the May set without having to have restored and re-arched.

Hi TLea,

I sent you a personal message with my phone number and email.  Give me a call and we can discuss the details.

Thanks
