Hi all,

I'm in re-assembly mode and discovered I don't have springs for the accelerator shaft (see picture) or for the brake and clutch pedals. Can't find them on Classic Alfa, OKP or AFRA. Brake and clutch pedal springs look pretty standard, but I've no idea how strong they should be. The accelerator shaft one (102.00.44.503.00) looks a bit more special.

Any ideas where to get these or good substitutes?

Thanks,
Andy

Thanks for the good suggestions. A friend is holding a similar spring used on the Giulietta throttle shaft for me. I will need to pick it up and give it a try. But if I can't make that work it appears Century Spring makes hundreds of different torque springs. And Don is correct, I can just put a stronger spring at the other end of the shaft. Thanks for all the help!

Bob, thanks for checking on these! No idea where that one is from. Does anyone have an actual picture of the shaft spring. I'd like to see what it really looks like. All I have is the drawing from the parts book.

Andy,
I’ll take a look at my 102 tomorrow and be in touch.

Hi Richard, I checked my pictures of your car from when Ro and I visited you and your car is missing this spring. I assume you haven't had trouble with your accelerator pedal returning?

Thanks so much to everyone for the input and solutions. Generosity abounds here and I should have a spring to try this week. Once I have the spring in hand and can test it, I will post if it works!

The carb parts breakdown is from a sedan.The roadsters are different.Here is one from a roadster.There is no spring on the left side of the shaft on the firewall,there is a vertical spring on the right side of the shaft.There is another spring on the shaft above the carbs.
Well, that is embarrassing! I was on the wrong page of the parts book. Doh! Thank you Bob for noticing and setting it straight. And I'm sorry to everyone who commented, for not being more careful before asking the question. I had bookmarked the correct page but somehow ended up on the sedan page without noticing. Thankfully I have the vertically positioned spring on the right side.

And thanks Richard, who is mailing me one of his pedal springs so I can use it to find a replacement at the hardware store.
