Too many springs.

  • Too many springs.

    I'm trying to figure out all the little detail parts I'm going to need for my engine - '63 259, 4-bbl, Flight-O-Matic - and the shop manual shows two springs attached to the throttle linkage: the throttle return spring that goes from the carb linkage to the intake manifold bracket, and a "bell crank return spring" that attaches from the bell crank to the valve cover -- ?

    I do not currently have this "bell crank return spring" on my car. The illustration in the parts manual is ambiguous - it lists the spring as being used for a 63V, but does not list a bracket for it or really show where it attaches. Can anyone shed light on this?

    Thanks!

    Clark~

    I tried to post a pic of a '63 Cruiser for ya, but it didn't work!!! So here's a link to the only other engine pic I could find in which you can see two springs. I've got to warn you- this is just a shade different then your motor, but the idea is the same...

    No worries, I hope!!! The springs on this car are blue, BTW... don't let the ice on the blower and carb box distract/intimidate you!!! [:0]

        On my 63 289ci & 259ci the other spr. goes from the left rear valve cover nut.The spr. end attaches via a hole in the ignition wire holder under this nut then to the carb linkage

          The rear spring goes from the bell crank to the valve cover. The other spring goes from the carb to a tab that fastens to the water outlet.

          No problem finding these..

          Hopefully this pix illustrates what Mike is saying. This is a '64, but I think it's the same. The bellcrank return spring fastens through a small hole in the sparkplug wire clip on the valve cover on the lower end and through a hole on the throttle bellcrank lever near where the rod going to the carb fastens.

            And honestly, I think anything more than ONE spring to return the throttle is redundant. Heck - for '55 they used THREE springs on the throttle![}] It's YOUR foot that has to work against them all.
