Coil Balance Parts

A handy person from USA says:
Please see the attached.

The shoe measures 9/16 ~ 5/8" x 1-7/16"

As you can see, the knotches has two knotches.

Looks like I would have to replace the springs and shoes.

Any suggestions?

The manufacturer has actually discontinued your coil balance system. Now, they recommend our Series 152 coil balance spring. From your photo, it looks like it has a #8 printed on it. If so, I recommend our S152-8 coil spring with a 15-158 pivot shoe. Other parts you may need if they're broken or missing are our 15-143 support flange, 15-144 support cap, 15-145 support barrel and 33-072 screw.
A quick learner says:

How would I connect the spring tot he shoe, with the smaller screw? where would the barrel 15-145 be usd?

Yes, you would attach the spring to the shoe with the screw. The barrel goes inside the spring and fits over the cylindrical protrusions in the 15-143 or 15-144.
