Here are pics I managed today from the brake/clutch area. If anyone sees an obvious miss by me feel free to point it out.

It was laying on the ground and I know wasn't related to the cowl as I had that unbolted, etc. in the Fall (no springs, just 4 bolts). Still need to check on a brake "return" spring as someone else suggested but lately I have spent my time on trying to get my Clipper running and disassembly of my "rough" Six. Finally got the head off of that one today-- whew. That project I feel like I'm doing a reverse Johnny Cash.

This all may sound crazy but... there was a break in rain the one day and I had time for a short drive so I started the car, pulled it out with plans to get up on the ramps. I didn't sense any issues with shifting or braking so I drove a bit to test. I didn't notice any difference in driving/stopping/shifting etc. Now I am starting to wonder if the part came off my riding mower deck, so this may have been the oddest series of spring confusion.

Nice car. The funny thing is without zooming in on the interior pic the wood graining looks a little like rust!

Those lights I embedded and put together like I posted here awhile back:

https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?post_id=254531

The only real issue I have had is checking the charge before a drive-- the remote will beep but that doesn't mean the light part is charged and working. The remote straps nicely to the gear shifter as well. I've tested whether these will work while "charging" on a small power bank and they will so I'm going to basically do a similar strap for the pack to attach to the backside of the bumper and plug the lights in to the bank. It's easier to keep a power bank with charge since it holds more juice and plug these in when driving. Still makes it nice to unstrap for car shows so the hack doesn't stay on there and I like the originality of the car.

Much appreciated. I ordered a part that may work as a relatively inexpensive gamble so long. I have also done a bit of searches on similar models to compare parts carbs that may have a spring to see how much I'd pay for a parts carb for a silly spring.

Fast idle spring search

I am having trouble sourcing a fast idle spring for my Carter WDO 512s. A replacement wasn't in a kit I had purchased and a mishap and leaves caused me to lose the original. (magnet searches unfruitful) I have searched many of the usual suspects but maybe I missed something. I found another that is not specific to this Carter carb but it's a gamble as to whether the size i close enough to make work.

With all the suggestions I decided to take a look from the top side and can confirm the throttle spring is there and is looser as others noted. I played with the emergency brake and it does feel a little looser but that could be in my head. The clutch play feels normal.
