I need to replace door springs on four milk cars. I too would like to see a video or description.
The 3482-33 spring works better if you can find them. It holds the doors all the way closed. The 3472 spring allows the doors to remain slightly open. It is also easier to install.
I took a few pictures of milk car doors in the parts bin. It appears that a great deal of creative is used when installing these springs. I have not put springs in for a couple of years, but two things I recall are; it is done with the door frame removed and, the door is not fully installed until the spring is installed.
Great pictures. Thank you.
