FYI on my experience on weights and springs
Had grease type 14 g weights and changed to Greaseless for ease of maintenance. Grease type getting dirty and hanging up stopping the shift and speed. Tried stock spring, then Orange secondary spring and went back to Stock spring. Found out the Orange spring moved my RPM range at all speeds up about 500 RPM. I have a large tack and do so looking when I can. The Orange spring let me come out of the hole at 7400RPM and then it started shifting. Great for everything performance wise on the drags and hills but for dunning it kept me BUZZED UP between 6000 and 7400 RPM. The Stock spring brought me down to 5000 to 7000 when dunning and still kept my RPMs up pretty good on the China Wall and Olds. Found out that these engines go 8500RPM when flowed, cammed, carbed, etc. but I have a mild stroke, mild cam with stock cases and did not want to face the "blow up" sooner than latter. I think I am in my power ban (LOL) if I have one, NOW. PS most the Hi comp 686's that ran great had 14 g weights and Orange springs this last guys trip by CAMshaw. However, they don't have tacks to compare RPMs with.
