Good job Johnny! Keep us posted. I bet there are a lot of tractors out there that need their springs replaced.

The leaf springs on my E-38 are no longer serviceable,all the leafs are rusted thin and at least a couple of them are broken. I have a few sets of old Chevy truck springs that are the same width but somewhat thicker, I'm in the process of re-arching them into a set of E-38 replacement springs, I hope it all works out.
I got the Idea by watching a couple of "Re-Arching leaf spring" videos on you tube and I bought new center bolts on E bay. I used a Hossfeld bender to increase the arch on the springs, it seems to work well for this.
Here are a few progress pictures....

Hello Will -

Haven't any measurements, but I've used them with the oil channels on the inner ends nearly worn down.

Even though they are shorter, with the snug fit, once they're driven home they're not likely to loosen in service.

If the channels are worn flat you could grind new ones - they provide oil to the axle bushings.

Thanks for the idler ID.

I would say it was an OC-3, but the lack of serial # tag on the bellhousing and no water pump makes me think otherwise, if the serial number breaks page is correct. Any HG after 49 should have a water pump if I read that correctly.

After 65 or 70 years its hard to say if the hood was ever switched, or the wrong decals applied, or........or.......or....... :-)

I re-read your post and saw you stated that your tractor had a faded OC-3 sticker, so it must be an early OC-3.

The early idlers have the holes in them while the late are solid with bolts.  You should be able to see the late idlers in my pics from other posts.

Nope, just the three speed. do I tell early front idlers from late ones? I got some extras on the pallet of parts, I think they looked a little different than the ones on it but hadn't really investigated yet.
