Gearbox Clutch Slave Cylinder retractor spring?

PostPost by: HuskerElan » Fri Jun 04, 2021 6:12 pm

Hello All;
I recently inherited a 1970 Elan S4. My Father's dream car.
Has some clutch issues, Hydraulic leak. While inspecting the slave cylinder, I noticed the retractor spring is missing.
I have the workshop manual, but there is no data for the retracting spring. See pic below. (I'm using Mark's picture from his May 2021 post) Thanks Mark.

Does anyone know how to find a replacement spring? or the dimensions of this spring, and I will have one made?

Since you are stateside, give Ray at RD Enterprises a call - I'd bet he has them.
