I would be glad to, however, I sold NG601GE last year and it is now in Wisconsin and owned by Cliff Mattson. Sorry! Perhaps he will do as you ask.
Great to add you as a friend. The 601 is an awesome airplane with appropriate minor changes.. I'll try to dig up some info on your question

I start with replacing the >058 front tube with one fabricated from .120 wall chrome moly.
most Zeniths are destroyed when the tube folds under the plane.
There is a Die Spring chart to select from that list compression weight and inches.
For example 200 pounds to compress 1 inch etc.
I use a red one that I get from Fastenal. 30-40 bucks.
I might still have some in bags.
I have made the top plates and also bought just that part from Jan at Viking.

what model and engine are you building?
Hello. I owned a Zodiac 601HDS for 10 years. I sold it a couple of years ago to a very nice fellow in North Carolina. I did not build it. It was built by a gentleman in Elmira.

What model 601 are you building?
