Re: Leaving out the friction springs

I've tried the springs,but on the Intermountain 4750 covered hoppers I installed them in,(the springs,I mean),it made no difference with or without the springs installed so I also leave them out.

I have just temporarily assemble several cars, including the (Sergent) couplers. Because I intend to take them back apart, and because it's kind of a pain to assemble everything, I decided not to put the little friction-inducing coil spring in.
Got me wondering.
Has anyone left the springs out? And been happy with it?
It'll be a couple of months before these particular cars can be road tested (without springs), but I thought I'd bring it up now. Mostly 'cause I can't do much real work because of that famous knee replacement surgery you all are familiar with. Or will be.
