Carb linkage return spring on the firewall side
« on: April 14, 2019, 12:36:46 AM »
I've looked through all of the manuals and searched both sites, but I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.  The long spring, approximately 14", that returns the carb linkage to idle, is hooked up on the front side to a "tag holder" that is mounted on the back side/passenger side stud on the intake that the carb mounts to.  That's great.  I get that.  If you understand what I'm rambling on about so far, we are good.  However, what exactly does the other end mount to?  I know it is near the firewall, near/on the other carb linkage, but I can't find a picture showing exactly where it mounts.  Is it another tag holder?  If so, where is that tag holder attached?  Please help!

Hopefully my question is clear enough for you gurus to provide an answer.  I'd sure like a picture to show how it is supposed to be set up.

Thanks!

I think this has been posted somewhere before but here are some photos of the mounting locations.





Hope this helps you.

Thanks guys.  I searched the forums quite a bit and found pictures of the attachment point at the carb, but never could find the other end.  This is exactly what I need.  I appreciate it.

Thanks,
