Where to find brake spring?

This may sound silly yo ask, but I have tried Autozone, Napa, Farm & Fleet, Advance auto and other random plcces to buy a good stout brake pedal spring. None seem to have one husky enough to return a pedal shaft.

Can anyone recommend a source?

Hi Jim......

Take a look at this Model A Ford accessory.

This is copied from MAC's catalog, but just about any old Ford supplier should have.

Year Part Number Required Number Unit Of Measure
1928-1931 A2455ACC 1 SET

With instructions. Combines an anti-rattle and brake lever spring to prevent your stoplight from sticking or staying on.
Accessory that returns your brake pedal to the rest position.
This will also function as a clutch pedal return spring.
Painted Black.

Re: Where to find brake spring?

Thanks Frank- I have tried an assortment of similiar springs from my local auto places and none have the power to fight the pedal. I think I may have to take apart the pedal and clean everything- too many years of gunk and goop which successfully fight the spring.
