I have 43' Springfield that will eject a full En Bloc after the first shot. Any suggestions?

I believe there's a clip latch spring that is usually at fault in cases like these. Fortunately they're cheap to replace. I'm at work and can't access my files...

Hey thanks, I'll do a little digging and find that part!
It's a beautiful gun and I love the history!!

Replace the clip latch also.

Go with the spring.I don't think there is much that can go wrong with a clip latch itself . To find the correct round nose style that matches in color would be difficult.I have worked on a lot of Garands and have never seen a bad clip latch except in the parts bins of some shady dealers at gun shows.
