Ditto on what Tabora said, replace and shelve old one for an emergency spare. Make sure you tag it.

Most springs in the belly area of these units usually serve to keep tension on elements while in operation or pulls away. Usually, you can easily surmise by the spring length, and what purpose under operation any tension it would serve. Many times, it is in a hole in the frame which might even show slight wear mark or even around a notch in the frame, and even seen it attached around a protruded bolt.

@Cow,

I myself would not change a belt if it did not warrant it. With that being said, it's always a good idea to have extra items like that on hand, as if you break one in a storm, it is better to have something like that on hand. Just make sure to label things so you know what they are for.
