Just about anywhere that sells parts will have both springs and tines, or look on eBay
Springs are different to the 300 ones but you can use standard tines,I think it’s the blue spot ones just need an extra slight bend otherwise they will leave bits when raking.Much better than a small single rotor rake.

Probably need to order springs but they're the same for both rotors
Tines don't need modifying you just use wide and narrow standard ones but alternate them
Tines need to be left and right handed

Sparex use to do a complete kit to fit a 360. Springs, roll pins, plastic bushes and tines. Wasn’t silly expensive at the time. It was a few years back now mind.

Personally I do not worry too much about broken spring as long as the rotors are at working speed before lowering to the ground and lifted before switching off. I have a newish orange Kuhn and would think it has the tines from new. It still flicks out the odd bit when rowing up from the second rotor. I had always assumed that the old Vicon badged one did the same because of using standard tines. Seems to make little difference with correct tines.

Are wheel spindles meant to swivel at all ? just wondered what grease nipples were for above baskets below main frame ? mine was not very used one left under hedge so everything is a bit tight , so just freeing everything off .

Wheel spindles need to swivel to change from tedding to rowing up
Hadn't read that yours was on narrow tyres so it probably only uses narrow tines not the mix I suggested before (ours is later one with wide tyres and uses wide and narrow tines)
