TR2/3/3A Throttle rod spring location


Jedi Warrior

I am in the final stages or restoring a 54 long door. I know there is a spring somewhere on the rod at the firewall. Assume this spring allows the throttles to close.

Anyone have a pic or sketch of this spring and where it connects?

There is a tab welded to the corner of the right firewall where the firewall turns rearward. The other end goes to the small hole in the arm on the throttlle arm directly forward of the firewall tab. Not at home or I’d post a pic.

This is what I have. Hope it is what you need. On a TR3A
