I never saw the 45 motor in pieces, but when I collected it from the late great Philip Knighton he said that the springs were as thick as (cylinder) phonograph springs. He had the scars to prove it, and asked me never to bring him another one to fix!
That's a coincidence! I had exactly the same experience with the same make and model, except mine wasn't as stunning as this one, it was black with nickel fittings. After years of replacing springs with no problem, this was the one that got away. I too have the scars to prove it!
