Hello Again!

I am trying to restore my 1965 Mustang's throttle linkage back to stock. I have everything except the BELLCRANK RETURN SPRING. One end of this spring hooks onto a bracket under a bolt on the driver's side valve cover, and the other end of this spring hooks into a hole on the bellcrank lever. The ONLY part number information I have on this spring is a SHOP MANUAL number: 7B146. This spring is NOT the accelerator return spring!!! This spring is also not available at any of my usual Mustang parts dealers. Does anyone have a used one lying around? I don't care about the condition...I just need one of these! THANKS!

Andrew, it was me who you ordered your other parts from this morning (When I see our phone lines getting stacked up on hold, I dive in to help). If I sounded a bit clueless giving you more specifics on that spring, well, that's because I was. The 7B146 spring has been obsolete for so long that it pre-dates our databases. I saw your post here and decided to go digging in my Ford Manuals. What you are looking for appears to be, in full, C5ZZ-7B146-B. I already looked on PartsVoice, no luck. But maybe someone like Herndon, or Perogie, or Perkins, etc.etc.etc. may have one under a pile of dust. Another good tidbit is that the free length of the proper spring is 5 13/16". Hope this helps.
