Burman camshaft pawl spring

According to KTB the correct length of the pawl spring is 1.11/16" - yes, mine is measuring up. But, I suspect it may be too robust. Can anyone tell me the correct diameter of coils and how thick the wire is?

Yes, I know about the fix to ease spring push in 10YO, but I first wanted to make sure the spring was in fact the real deal.

Sring sizes

Don't know if you have had a reply to your post yet.
I have just checked my collection of springs and the dimensions on all of them is roughly the same i.e. 1.66" long .410" diameter .065" wire thickness ( approx 16 S.W.G.) hope this helps.
