Clutch Return Spring
« on: August 31, 2008, 06:27:36 PM »
I'm installing a set of full length Dougs headers on my 1969 Camaro. Looks like the clutch return spring needs a new home. Can someone give me a heads up on some of the common points that the spring might be moved to, what's involved etc. , etc. Thanks

In the past, if the header tube was in line with the spring, I just put a stainless hose clamp around the tube and attached the spring to it. Course I never had ceramic coated headers that I didn't want to scratch either.... ;)

I swapped the spring or extension hook end for end and it clears with Hooker Super Comps

Like what Firstgen said. It works perfect on Super Comps.
