Picture? Most likely use the seat and spring with the addition of the idle spring on each counterweight, but I would like to see what you are working with first.

I'd assume it installs just like any other GSK. The only difference would be the springs themselves. I don't know but it might even have a new idle spring along with the other three. My 4K from TST Products had one spring seat for the three inner springs too.

well its only one spring that fits right on the seat, one for each side so a total of 2 springs and 2 seats, most other gsks that ive seen have multiple springs for each side thats why im confused

missed that part, my bad. Well some pics might help. Like Smokem said you probably use that spring with the idle spring but it depends on what fits on the seat.

Sounds almost like it's an upgrade from a 4k. It would just need a little stiffer small spring to hit that extra 500 rpm.

Looks to be a shade under the 5K GSK that Columbus sells, install the seat and spring along with the idle spring on each counterweight. Remove all shims and tighten them to initiation and 3 clicks on each weight.
