Re: Replace springs on outboard lifting bracket??
A POX on all lawyers....
I am still waiting to hear back from TH Marine, as I believe that they have the type of springs I need, but in the meantime here is the reply from Garelick. (my current springs are only under tension when the bracket is lowered and yes I understand that fresh springs may be a more sprung.)
"For safety and liability reasons we DO NOT sell parts or springs for any Garelick Auxiliary Motor Brackets to outside parties. The disassembly and reassembly of these products requires a special jig and compression system to safely remove and reinstall the springs. These springs are under high tension and could cause severe injury if incorrectly handled. The only parts for these products that can be safely installed by a customer are limited to the tension knobs, the mounting board that holds the outboard motor and the safety cable. "
