I cant confirm that the spring is the same for both attachments, but I am thinking that I have read the same thing somewhere.

The specs for the snowblower spring are in this thread:

The p'n is 4629 and it was close to $30 a couple or 3 years ago.

I've thought about using a hood spring from a older car, you know before everything had hood props or shocks, the ones I take off my race cars mid 70's chevelles look about right.

Some pics of the lift springs made from a garage door.

The two center springs are pulled with a turnbuckle.

The outside spring is attached by hand and used for fine

adjustment. The force required to lift the snowblower

can be adjusted from -5 lbs to +20 lbs by changing the

point of attaching the spring. All springs are attached

to a bar in the attach-a-matic.
