Thanks, Jeff. We’re not entirely sure what material it is; it looks cast, but I’d be more inclined to say it’s steel rather than iron. But on the other hand I don’t really know what I’m talking about. Do you know a good way to test that?
We think it had a pin to hold the spring in place in the hole where it broke, but we couldn’t find it. I was thinking a pin could be welded in when the repair is made? Might make it less likely to break in that area if it didn’t have a big hole in it.
