Spring for parking brake and idler on Sundstrand

Recommended Posts

There is a non-original spring on my 1969 Charger that holds the engine to transmission idler puller tight. I don’t have another to compare it to. Can someone give me a part number or some dimensions or tension or some kind of guidance as to a proper replacement, maybe from Tractor Supply or something? Or is it just not that critical and I’m over thinking it?

Where does this go?

 

I’m having a bit of a brain fart here, but is this how the spring is supposed to be attached?  What’s that little nut and bolt sticking out right in back of the spring supposed to do… Is that just a stop for the idler when it’s in the “up“ position? Or does something else go there?

The spring looks correct.

In the 2nd photo, this is what I use:

 

5/16 in. x 2-3/4 in. Wire Round Lock Pin (5-Pack)
