I hear that. I lost a special washer once and I looked all over my motorcycle for a week and finally ordered a replacment from Germany. I got it and when back to put the shock on the bike I saw a small sliver of silver down in behind some stuff on the motor. Got a dental pick and finally dug it out. now the new washer is in the bag nailed to my garage wall :biggrin:You will find the spring when you get the replacement. Lost a guide for a custom fly rod when it flipped out of my hand while grinding the feet. Got one from another rod builder. Found the lost item six months later in the workbench drawer.
