Size of pivot show and what spring

A quick learner from Indiana says:
I need help with how to determine the pivot shoe size and how to determine what springs are needed.!

Thanks for posting. For your pivot shoe, I'd recommend looking at our 15-070. Your exact type has been discontinued, but the 15-070 has been reported to replace it well.

As for the balance, it looks like the tube diameter is 5/8". If so, I recommend our Series 600 spiral balance.
A quick learner from Windows says:
Would the 15-047 or 15-048 pivot shoe work? I already ordered these. If
not can I return those in exchange for the correct ones?

I'm afraid not. At this time the 15-070 is the only pivot shoe we know of that can replace this. You can return the shoes you purchased for a refund, however. See our return policy for more information.
