Clutch pedal return spring

I baught a new pedal return spring, it appears to be too long. Any pictures on how this is supposed to hook up. I have an 86 Cj. There is not a hole in the clutch pedal to put the spring through. Do I have the right spring?

Here you go, there's a small hole next to the pin that hold it in place. Disregard the arrow pointing to a bushing as that was for another posting in the past.

it is part number #25. it looks a lot different than the yellow posted. It is supposed to work. did you have to cut some of the length off and bend it?

Is that spring really even necessary? mine doesn't have it and my other CJ had one that was never connected and it all worked fine, nice light pedal pressure though.

The yellow spring shown, powder coated by the way, is an original for 1984 and your 86' will be the same. There is a difference in spring length after about 1982 when AMC/Jeep changed the upper portion of the pedal and got rid of the extension to mount a longer spring that were prone to popping off. So they shortened the riveted spring bracket attached to the pedal in favor of using a shorter spring with a pin to hold it in place. You can see the difference form the picture I posted to the one from Coiz that is posted here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/cl...2/#post7116645

Keith, thanks for the help. So i ordered the spring and said it was for an 86 jeep but got the longer spring not the short one shown in your picture. Where do i order the original size spring? This is the second time I have ordered that spring and the second time I got the long one.

Have no idea where to get that one. Some other people have tried getting that spring before but have had no luck as far as I know.

I just got one for mine at the local hadware store. They had a huge selection and only required a slight snip and a minor re bend at one end all for less than $4. It works just fine returning the pedal back up to its stop.
