Clutch and Brake return springs

    Hey All,

    I have noticed my clutch and brake springs are looking worn, making some noise and are begining to show some rust. I have looked at all the usual places, Sunbeam Specialties, VB, etc. but don't see any replacements. Checking the Internet, I see most posts say find used ones.

    Does anyone know where to find new replacements? They are just springs. Is there an equivalent spring from another make of car?

    I did do a search of spring manufacturers in my area and found one that has a huge stock or pre made springs or will custom make them. If no one knows where to get them I could pull mine out and measure them for size and how many pounds of pressure they make, but that does seem like over kill if they are available.

    Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    Ash, are you talking about the springs down under the dash at the pedals? Can't imagine them being a problem. Try just greasing them up a bit to stop any rust and noise. That doesn't work, you can always try for new springs.
