    Doesn't that spring assist you in pushing the pedal down? I can't back this up with evidence, but it seems that way to me.

    hum i cant tell, it just pivots towards firewall with the pedal arm and doesnt seem to expand at all, ever. hummm....


    on a side note do any of you over there have a set of full time 44 hub slugs ? outlaw612 needs a set, thought maybe one of you might have an extra set since after getting that 8 lug 44 axle i had from that 77 K20 ? he also needs a driver side manual door, i have him a pass side one here from a 79 /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif but no driver side ones right now


    thanks

    The spring keeps the pedal 'up'. Mine broke a few years back, then the replacement broke.../forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I don't run one now...

    haha cool,

    does the spring make resistance when you depress the pedal?

    is yours easier to depress with out the spring now than how it was before with it ?

    thanks!
