Default Should my 1967 Mustang have the E-Brake Return Spring?

Should my 67 Coupe have the E-Brake Return Spring?

I'm putting together a parts list to freshen the Parking Barkes and the Return Sprinig was not in the old brake parts box that I dug out last night so I have to assume mine was missing or never had it. MU has one for 65-68, but CJ skips 67 & 68 for the spring. MU has got me before with poor facts so I thought I better check with you all.

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply Jon, but I should have been more clear. I was refering to the spring that may hook up to the lever that is close to the tranny x-member. It's advertised as being about 15 inches long.

Sick, My 68 fastback does not have a return spring on the ermergency brake lever down below ( where the cable from the handle connects to the pivirung lever underneath on the driver side.)

I checked my parts illustration manual and the E-brake assembly for 67 -68 mustang is the same. It does not show or referance any spring for that lever unlike my 66 which does have a spring.

Thanks a bunch RF,

It never fails to amaze me how info from the catalog comapnies gets so fouled up. I even called CJ and asked this question. I was told that the catalog info for the spring was mismarked and should include the 67 & 68. The real confusing issue is that the 67/68 E-Brake kit includes what they call a Return Spring.

Sick, my 67 has no spring either. Not that you needed that since RF just provided you the ultimate proof.
