    Are those from your L34? I am thinking that all of the Z springs came from the same vendor and that vendor only used round hole spring straps.

    Guess that settles that. They could have square or round holes. I wonder now if there are any Norwood Z's with square holes?

    Is there any conclusion on WHAT part # to order from EATON
    with a - 1" -2" etc arch.....

    and can this ONLY be ordered from EATON and no one else ??

    Given that EVERYBODY that has ordered the standard 70 Z-28
    replacement has had to pay $$$ to have a shop re-arch

    Is MY QUESTION clear...........

    I'm guessing that STILL...nobody knows ????

    as always, Chuck
