Power steering / clutch arm return spring bracket
« on: August 11, 2018, 10:52:59 am »
I am putting power steering back on my car , got hose bracket from Npd, but it seems to go where my clutch arm return spring bracket was with no place to connect return spring. Any photos would be helpful of power steering 4 speed cars.   
Do I need another bracket ?

I don't think I have a return spring bracket on my car.  Going from memory, doesn't the return spring for the clutch arm just hook into the bellhousing somewhere?

Three springs on your clutch pedal assembly... 1. on the pedal support under the dash.  2. From the firewall to the equalizer bar notch at upper bend.  3.  equalizer bar to the clutch fork.  Brian

That bracket is someone's home made idea. Not needed, toss it.
