50 De Soto Tip-toe fluid transmission.  I have some slippage in the fluid drive. I want to check the clutch pressure springs but do not have gauge  C-647. Actually I do not want a gauge, what I need is the dimension from the torque wrench attachment point to the center of the spring.  I can make something up if I have that dimension.

Secondly,  if the springs are weak do you know where I can buy new ones? Thanks in advance

I doubt you issue is weak pressure plate springs.  I suspect the fluid level is low in the fluid coupling or your clutch disk is worn out.  I would look at those items first before you start looking at weak springs.
