What accelerator return spring should I use ...

Hi Guys,

I've got a 750 Holley Carb on a 350 block ... what would be the accelerator return spring setup that I would need?

Any bracket needed, etc...

Thanks ...

Great, another one of ............. "these" ............. guys! Research is being done my friend. Even after a good bit of research, it's nice to ask of other's experiences ...

However, I should give more information:

I also have the Bowtie Overdrives TV made easy Cable bracket and I ordered their throttle cable bracket today ...

I may end up having to use something like this ... but I'm not sure,

I'm thinking that the traditional springs, such as these, might not work with the Bowtie Overdrive Brackets ...

For some reason, I'm thinking the springs go from the linkage towards the firewall and not from the carb linkage to the radiator ... correct?

i get all my springs either from a junkyard or the Help! section at the auto parts store..

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

Tim,

I have the BTO setup and I just picked up a double spring from the help isle at Advance. Drilled a small hole in the BTO bracket and is was a done deal. There's probally several ways to accomplish this.
