Carb Return Spring Placement

Here is a picture of my current setup.



I will be replacing the exisiting "Z/28" throttle rod and would like to use the hole the return springs are now occupying. Any ideas on where to relocate the return springs to? Edelbrock 1405 carb.

Re: Carb Return Spring Placement

I use an inner and outer spring setup that works nice in one small hole. It looks like you have such a hole right below your current setup. You could also try putting your current spring bracket on the bolt for the kickdown and run the springs back to the kickdown cable bracket. Two quick ideas that came to mind. Those springs look pretty heavy. If you need two springs you might try lighter ones. It causes less wear and tear on the throttle shaft bores and you don't need to stand on the pedal.

Re: Carb Return Spring Placement

Sorry Jim, I am not following what you are saying.

Those springs look heavy duty but the aren't. Just lots of coils.

The other thing that bothers me about this setup is why is there a bolt/nut being used as a stop on the kick down cable. I thought any slack in the cable should be removed by adjusting the kickdown with the carb at WOT.

Re: Carb Return Spring Placement

what I'm saying is just slide your throttle arm thru the hole in your spring brascket, leave it right where it is. Bet you can still get the clip on.

Re: Carb Return Spring Placement

Well if you can't move the kickdown back toward the firewall far enough, I guess that's one way to fix it.
