One question to all: on the last picture I've found this spring on the frame. What is the task of the spring?

Completely sandblasted, zinc primed and powdercoated. Screws are sandblasted and black galvanized.

I also replaced the bushings with new ones.

Believe the spring is to return the clutch bell crank, I'll double check on mine, I have the sm420 transmission, but any standard will have the return spring.

Steve and James: if I understand correctly, the spring is hung here (photo)?

BTW: the frame is now sandblasted and painted. Also the crossmember and the control arms. I want to mount the parts in a few days to post new pictures

I dont think that is the correct spring, the spring your showing looks more like the one found on the emergency brake assembly to the back equalizing plate.
Here is the pic of my spring on the clutch bell crank. Hope this helps. My truck is a 64 so maybe different.


1st pic is clutch second pic is ebrake.

GMCTom that is the correct spring. You should also have a stiff wire to extend the spring so it can connect to the clutch fork, see the picture of mine. it should be a long coil spring not a short one. I also have the spring that tbucket show for the parking/emergency brake.

James, that means mine is probably wrong then. Your setup looks exactly like my 53 truck though, same spring and stiff wire extender.

James, Steve, thank you a lot for the pictures.

I think I have the solution. The probably best wife in the world gave me the maintenance manual of my GMC truck to my birthday

The spring is the right one. It is connected to a link (bended wire). This link is conencted to the frame. The other end of the spring is connected to the release fork of the clutch. Don't know if it is allowed to post a picture out of the manual.

Thank you for the note regarding the spring of the handbrake. This one is missing completely

Yes this is the right combination. Maybe you can tell me how long the stiff wire is?
