Alden, this issue has come up a couple times on various lists in reference to Walthers diaphragms. My plan is to add a spacer between the metal leaf spring and the end of the car so that it doesn't put as much pressure on those tabs at the top and bottom of the diaphragm. The other suggestion I've heard is to replace it with a piece of thin styrene strip which wouldn't be as strong as the metal spring. I think either way should work - I know other have used the styrene strip idea - I just figured the plastic strip would start to develop a memory over time and lose some of its pressure.
