My 1934 model 46 has spring covers.  The 1934 manual says they are furnished.  I have original brochures that say they were an option.  I would assume 1935 was similar.  Pages 81 - 84 of the 1934 Shop Manual explains how to take them off and reinstall them. It suggest that when replacing the covers new ones be used as the old ones will become too damaged when taking them off.  Mine were in very good condition and I was able to take them off regrease the springs and put the covers back on.  I had to be extremely careful and it was not an easy task.  I had to make a spring loading machine as pictured on page 82 of the manual.  My suggestion is; unless you have a set of NOS or really good used ones leave them off.  I do not feel they are really necessary.  By the way, if anyone needs a spring loading machine like that pictured in the manual let me know.
