'52 Buick-heat riser spring

Recommended Posts

Could someone describe or post a photo of where the heat riser anti-rattle spring attaches ? Exhaust flange bolt ? I suspect the counter weight lever became bent during the repair.  I have the shaft moving freely, a new coil thermostat and spring. Thank you.

Much obliged ! I'll have to make up an "ell" bracket.

The "el" bracket on mine had been lost to time as well.  Went to hardware store, found a couple different length that I though might have worked (they come in a 2 or 3 pack), and then drilled the hole bigger to accept the flange bolt.  Trickiest was finding a bracket long enough on the bottom side to clear the edge of the flange, but wasn't too long that would allow for the spring to attach.  All that spring is meant for is to keep the butterfly valve in the heat riser from flapping when it's been totally freed up/working properly.
