Is the clutch return spring mounted with some slack or is it mounted tight. I have the version that you have to cut the spring to the right lenght by yourself. Carla.

Be sure it is tight enough and placed in a position that it pulls the clutch arm at the bell housing hard enough to raise the clutch pedal to it's upper stop.

The purpose is to pull the throw out bearing away from the pressure plate to prevent premature throw out bearing failure. If the clutch is adjusted properly, with the spring on you should have about 1" of free travel in the clutch pedal.

Thank's for the info. I think the best for me here is to stretch the spring a little and see where i should cut it.Carla.

Make sure you have the right spring. It should be very strong.

I bought it from Chev's of the 40's. No one have the original style so i have to cut it to the right lenght and bend it.
