Okay, I am all ready to GooKit a Grande.
Got 3gal of distilled water, my GooKit, and a assortment of different width stainless steel
coil springs, each is 12'' long.
I have the following sizes: 10, 12, 13 and 14mm wide.
I noticed my Grande has 2 coils in it. One about 4'' wide, and another smaller one sitting
inside the larger one.
They both look like the same width, maybe about 1/4''.
I havent received the goo color I want to use yet, so have to wait before I start my project.
Here is my question; which of my coil springs should I use to replace the old ones?
Also, should I use 2 coils, as they did at the factory?
My 14mm spring is made with thicker wire than the others.
Something else weird I have noticed when I filtered 2 of my Grandes, I noticed a strong odor of
turpentine!!! this surprised me, the GooKit has no odor.
I am thinking there may be something volitile in the wax of these Grande's, so I used extra causion.
I have never opened a US made LL, so I do not know if the turpentine smell is normal or not!!
The ones I have are high quality SS. I could find no better.
I dont think these will go bad in my lifetime ;)
If I use a single 14mm coil (which has thicker wire) would I still need a second coil?
Someone on another thread used a 15mm coil for his Grande, but didnt say if only using the one.
