Gents I have found with the light copper spring you can loose the springs to vaporization. Short period of high current draw can melt the springs! 
I have two or three locos that have lost more than half their springs over the years.
I usually replace them with steel springs cut down to fit!
Just info to think about.

I have a stash of NWSL springs around here somewhere
