Seeking Elegant Throttle Return Spring Solutions...
#1
If you have purchased that after market carburetor and intake manifold, during installation you realize the hassle of rerouting the gas line.

However, a more important issue is the placement, longevity and dependability of the THROTTLE RETURN SPRING. Actuallly, it should perhaps be throttle return springs. Many of us actually use 2 springs these days because the quality is garbage, so we like the idea of having a backup in the event one decides to break on us.

Please post information detailing:

-Carb Type
-Manifold Type
-Link To The Parts if you bought them
-Clear photo of your fabricated parts.

so we can duplicate your efforts.

What follows is my contribution:

I prefer to pull from the bottom of the carb's throttle bracket and mount the springs behind the carb.

-Holley, Model, CFM unknown, circa 1984
-Weiand Manifold, circa 1984
-Stock Throttle Linkage

-Edelbrock Performer 600 CFM
-Edelbrock Performer Manifold, 351W
-Fabricated plate to mount securely behind carb so spring can be in line with throttle bracket. I use one fat spring and one skinny spring. The plate is very thick, but it is what I had on hand.

I bought my spring kit from Holley through Amazon for about $10. If you want a pic please remind me and I'll snap one tonight.
