    Ham's '48 - How to Rig aThrottle Return Spring

    OK now I have a newbie question.

    On the F-134 engine, how is the throttle return spring rigged?

    When we were putting things back together, nobody remembered the way it was rigged originally, and we didnt spend a lot of time searching we just rigged a bracket and spring, as you can see in the pictures.

    Im not real happy with that arrangement because I have this feeling that the sharp edges are going to give me a spring failure one day and then life gets interesting really quickly.

    Does anyone have a photo of how that spring should be rigged?

    LarrBeard, Of all the times you've helped me, I wish I could help you. It looks like you're system is different than mine.
    Not to mention I didn't have any spring on my system either. I hooked a spring where I thought it would work but I'm in the same situation you are.
    Anyway, I hope your having a Happy Easter.

    Go to "putting the spring back in pappy" on the Jeep forum. The spring goes from the pivot at the tappet cover to a square plug at the oil galley at the bottom of the block. The forum post has a good diagram and pictures.
