Hi, can anyone give me the dimensions of the clutch pedal return spring ie diameter and length or better still have one they are willing to sell.
Regards George.

The clutch spring(s) are available from Moss Europe at just over £2.00 each.

Thanks for that, do you know if they are the same for the series MM? on the web site you gave me it states 803 and the mm is a totally different set up.

Having looked at the BMC wksp manual - MM clutch section E - I have no reason to think that the 803cc clutch pedal return spring would not be suitable.

Thanks for the info Phil, I purchased a spring from Moss and fitted it with a bit of a struggle but went OK and works fine.

Hello George,
I don't suppose you managed to get any pictures of the return spring fitting?
I bought a replacement spring as the one on my Low Light seems totally the wrong type and I never got any responses to my question about how the spring fits, and where.
Regards,

George.

Hello Brian, does the spring go through the hole in the rod or does it go around the rod shaft?
I currently have a split-pin in the rod shaft hole and the current, very weak spring, hooked over the short rod end.
