'66 six cylinder throttle return spring?

Post #1 by paul25g » Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:04 am

Hi guys,

I've got a '66 six cylinder with the 3 speed manual transmission.

These links are to images show a "return spring", part #7B146.....it's missing on my car:

I do have the accelerator retracting spring shown below that.

The parts manual image doesn't indicate that this is for an automatic transmission car, but when I google that part number it comes back as an automatic transmission kickdown return spring.

Any ideas if this should be used on a '66 six with a three speed?

Thanks!

Paul

9737 the carb return spring is used on both a stick and auto! But the 78146 spring would only be used (in addition) with an auto trans in the car (is for passing gear)

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
