  • Spring..

    Well,..I thought I knew what it was for..BUT..
    It has to many turns for the e-28 clutch return spring..
    It has the wrong ends for the left hand brake spring..
    Is it a AA truck clutch return spring?

    Thanks,
    Dudley

    It goes on the park brake lever at the backing plate. After you've put them on a couple times they get easier. They should be wound opposite of each other, ie left side right side.

      Ya know Dennis, I think you are right. It does look like the return spring for the early multiple disk clutch, but the turns are wrong, and I suspect that there have been mistakes made comparing the two.
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        No to both,...look at the wire size, it's .164" !
        I "KNOW" 1928 parts very well, that's why I think it's later..here's another photo..
        Jim or Rod,..you guy's have any ideas?

          You are correct and I stand to be corrected. Those aren't park brake return lever springs. Here is a photo of park brake springs. Later I went to Snyder's and saw this for an early park brake, when the lever was to the left side, the other picture with more coil and appears to be a larger diameter wire. But the ends of the spring aren't the same as OP

            Ok, if that the case, the only other spring it could be is the Clutch Pedal return spring for the multi-disk clutch.

            Then again, it may not even be a spring for a Model A!

              How about a clutch pedal return spring for 1928 right hand drive.

                Nice shot Tom, but is the clutch pedal the right one in a RHD car? From the curls on that spring, I am really thinking it is not Model A, unless it is an aftermarket farmer's fix for the brake pedal.

              I borrowed this from Bratton's, I don't have a E-28 clutch pedal return spring here at work.
              I agree,it's either for a later AA truck or NOT even a Model A..

                I just took a gander at the picture in the JS and the clutch return spring shows a heavy 3 turn spring. So, I am thinking we need to look some place else, I don't think it's Model A at all.

                Even though Bratton's shows the same spring for the 1928 and the AA the parts book shows A-7523-R for the 1928 and AA-7523 for the 1929-31 AA.

                  I am at a loss for possible applications at this point. Thinking it may be for a slightly later car than the A. Will dig in the 1937 parts book this week. Mind still recovering from 3 consecuative 14 hour nights at work. Rod

                    With Bob's help,..the part number...should have looked it up !.. (duh)
                    And with Rod's help,..the books on the bench, go look it up !....(duh again)

                    My chassis book from 28-35, ONLY shows one picture of that area and it's a conventional looking spring. They do list 2 springs for the trucks, an AA and BB,..I think it's too heavy
                    to be a passenger car part. I'll try Neil Wilson for help..

                      I am suprised Neil has not joined us here yet. If it is AA or BB Neil is the best bet. I have some questions for him also, just have not taken the 10 minutes it takes to email him. At any rate I will pull my parts books out later tonight and have a look. The 28-37 Parts List is pretty detailed and the 42 Parts List has some dimentional info not found anywhere else, but short on drawings. Unfortunately the 52 Parts List is just that a List with no real identification info. Rod

                      Cam Plunger spring
                      by DaWizard
                      Ok, since I can't find it I will ask.

                      Does anyone have the camshaft plunger spring specifics?

                      I have 2 springs and both read different pressures. Well, actually 3 springs, one is aftermarket, but that don't count unless the other two are too weak to be functional.

                      Weak front spring
                      by Mitch
                      This truck had a weak front spring which caused the drag link to rub the tie rod. The drag link actually had a flat spot worn into it. Note the distance now with a new spring. If your rods rub you also need a spring...

                      Rear spring removal
                      by Fomoco998
                      Pulled the rear from the car and removed all the brakes. Got it on saw horses and have what is called a traveling spring spreader looking for any extra precautions in removing spring with a spreader of this type . Thanks

                      Roadster Front Spring
                      by 40B1930
                      Installed a new spring about a year ago and I have noticed a "hard/stiff" front end ride with shocks adjusted 3/8 turn out. The new rear spring with shocks at 1/4 turn out works great.
                      I did notice that the shock arm ball is unseated on the left as I was taking these photos. From floor to center of bumper measures 19-3/8". Looking at the shackles angle position, am I missing something?...

                      Rear Spring length
                      by Corley
                      Put a Camero rear axle in my pickup with a model A spring on top of it. I then removed some leaves to lower the rear, but now on a big bump, the spring has increased in length so much that the end of the spring hits the axle housing. Are their any shorter springs available that still fit over the differential housing, off the shelf? I know I could have the ends of mine cut and re-curled, but it...

                      Model A listing
                      by JohnB15632
                      I could use some help. My A is listing to the right. I am thinking that during the assembly of the rear spring to the frame, I must have made a bad mistake.
                      Now, what should I do to correct this list? Do I need to raise the frame and drop the rear axle?
                      Should I invest in a new rear spring?

                      Thanks

                      Spring Lubrication, Mystik Grease, Graphite, and Covers
                      by Tom Wesenberg
                      This has worked well for me. I've done a few for customers. Round the bottoms of the ends of each spring leaf. Grind the edge of any worn pockets on the tops of each spring leaf. Sandblast and powdercoat the springs, then coat them with Mystik JT-6 High Temp grease, sprinkle on graphite, and wrap them with spring covers. I can't imagine they will ever see a speck of rust in my lifetime, and they have...

                      Made a good discovery yesterday
                      by Standing Elk
                      My buddy and I decided to take both the front and rear springs out from under my coupe, as it acted a little stiff and had a slight lean. We removed the front spring first and found it kinda rusty. We took it completely apart and I wire brushed all the rust off each leaf. We then greased about the first 4 inches of the leaves and put er back together. We next removed the rear spring and discovered...
