    No. On the balance chamber side. The arrow shows how short the centering shoulder is on the poppet.

    Yes, springs indeed vary greatly and I agree are the culprit in most issues encountered with the G/156 etc...

    Sorry for being late to the party, as usual.

    I can confirm what shurite7 said. SP used to ship the s-wing poppet with the service kit, then they stopped doing it, and now they include it again, the info is current as of Dec 2020. The price is the same, about $20 retail. Backward compatibility is not a problem at all.

    With that said, I don't see any compelling reasons to replace the poppet/chamber at each service: they seem to last forever (OK: 500+ dives and/or 10+ years of storage) and give very consistent performance over that period: 22-23mm H2O cracking.
