If it was one from Stationary engine parts they seem to be a bit too strong compared to standard ones but yes, as far as I'm aware they are the same. I've never worried about it in the past.

All my A's, B's, D's and F all run on D springs without bother.

If it seems a little tight include a small split ring in the length when you first run the engine. Once you have settled on the running speed that suits you, you should be able to tell if you can remove the split ring. If you can't then you will need to make a slightly longer hook.

Well its up and running, I tried as you said martin the spring was to tight and would not run very well, so I put the split ring in and got it to run as sweet as a nut! so I made a longer hook and its now running great.
Many thanks martin for your help.

Not sorted - you've set the Vid to Private.

The Photobucket vid was very jerky yesterday when I tried to watch it, but the engine seemed to be running OK on the bit I did manage to see.
