Any chance you have any pictures of the load assist set-up?

life is too short to drink cheap beer...unless that's all we've got and then pass me a cold one!

Steve, I will go out and take a picture of the spring. I will also measure the spring for you. When you slide it into the track and feed it, it just fits. Feels a little like it will come back out, but doesn't. It does help quite bit. My problem was that I put safety glass in front window. It is 32" thicker, which makes window a little heavier. The extra weight, is a little too much for the cranks. Inland RV and Vintage cranks are the same. I am going to change my front glass back to plate glass as I have a rock guard to keep it from breaking. I will leave the springs for added ease. Kenny Send me ur email and I will send you the photo's.

Steve, If you or anyone with a rock guard is interested. I am going to buy a sheet 4'x8' of polycarbonate $300 (Lexan) and have it non-scratch coated $200. This will make four equal replacement shields for rock guard frame. This brings the price down to about $130 ea for a new shield. If interested let me know. Kenny
