Coil Balance Replacement Parts

A contractor from Nanaimo BC says:
The Springs on these coil balances are a little different than your style These are set up in tandem but the coils have a different notch
If I changed them using your parts what exactly would I need. include the bottom pivot.
Thanks for your time Jeff

Thanks for submitting your photos.

Can you submit a few photos of the end of the coil balance and photos of the pivot shoe? This will help us with researching a possible replacement.

Jeff, is there a number printed on the coil?
A quick learner from Nanaimo BC says:
Yes there is a number 5 stamped on the spring

Thanks for getting back to us.

Unfortunately the manufacturer of these balances has discontinued this specific Series, the one you're replacing. They recommend us the Series 152 as a replacement. You will have to replace your spring with the S152-5 Coil Balance and the housing 15-158 Coil Balance Shoe. You should be able to use the rest of your original parts.
