Does the 52 have a clutch petal return spring? If so, where can I find one? Thanks

MANY, MANY years ago, I bought a generic spring from my NAPA store. Still working just fine.

Here is the NAPA number. You will get 2 springs in this box.

    No - it was the experienced spring that came with the car. Here is another photo.

    That looks EXACTLY like what I bought from NAPA many years ago, and it's still doing fine.

    The shown replacement spring is far too heavy ~
    notice how thin the coils are on the originals .

    The clutch and brake pedal return springs are light, they only need to be strong enough to return the pedal to the toe board with a thump .
