Emergency Brake Retract Springs

Hal Davis (MODEL A HAL)

Recommended Posts

What is the proper orientation of the Model A Ford emergency brake retract springs? I have the spring coiled around the emergency brake shaft housing with its "tail" pressing down on the top of the service brake camshaft housing and the "hook" hooked around the emergency brake arm pulling it to the rear. This is the position that makes sense to me, but the "hook" does not fit very well. As a matter of fact, I broke one of the springs at the "hook" trying to install it.
