1955 ES2 - centre stand

Can someone help with where the spring for the centre stand locates.

Hi Martin - there is already a thread which might help. "Centre stand spring pre-Featherbed ES2". I'll check on my '55 ES2 in the morning and report back. I know the stand is fitted with a steel clip to which the spring attaches but can't remember how the spring attached at the top. very difficult to fit, though. George

While talking of pre F/bed centre stand springs, perhaps you could update on the 57/58 spring that nobody appears to supply!  The current fall back position is a plastic cable tie.  Not good enough...

I've checked mine Martin (pre-featherbed '55 ES2) and the spring attaches to a "stud" with a radial groove protruding forwards from the swinging arm cross member. George

Thanks George I will go and have a look. Then I will have to source a spring
