Well the Gambo trick on the ACCT's finally quit working and the VN750 was getting a bit loud, especially when she was cold. so I thought about doing a conversion to manuals, but I had some stripped threads on one of ACCT caps. With that option out the door, I ordered some replacement springs from TOC. The springs were about 15% larger or so that the OEM's and really didn't take long to replace. I didn't order their key that is needed to preload the ACCTs, but made one myself out of some sheet metal scrap that I had. The key is a must as the springs must be wound and the plunger retracted as the ACCT's are reinstalled. So it you can't make one, you will need a grinder and a thin cut-off wheel, get theirs. All in all, took me about an hour to do the job.
The result was great. Really quiet now, no chain slap, knock or rattle when cold or hot, at any rpm. Good $20 investment, springs only. The complete kit, o-rings, springs and key is $35.
