Brooks Spring help


What your spring winding L & R or both the same?

Here let me explain.

Bought me a new B66 saddle took it apart so i could put a full coat of sno-seal on it. Then I come to reassemble I notice I have L&R windings on the springs.

Next I Sno-Seal my old early 60s B66 saddle and I notice the springs are the same in windings. L&L or R&R which ever one I got both springs look alike.

First thought Ohwell what ever. Take both bikes out for a adjustment check and come up with that I should replace the springs on the older saddle.

Google search https://www.wallbike.com/brooks/saddl...ks-coil-spring I come up with this L&R turnings.

Ive got lots of miles on the old brooks Ive never noticed anything wrong other than now I realize got weak springs.

Is there any engineering type differences in the L&R or both the same winding?
