I think you can get a similar spring from an ace hardware store( or whatever brand)
May not be the right length, so cut it to fit there tight. You also can place washers on the side of the cable entrance or on the side where the cable hooks to the arm to make it perfect fit.

Yes. Forgot to mention, on some tranies, the oil level stick might be slightly in the way of the spring( I cut the stick off) and on my last Ultima trany, a shaft nut ( whatever it,s called inside of that cable cover) that faced the spring had protruding nylon insert . It was touching the spring and making funny noise- so I just grinded it a bit for clearance.( and to shut it up)

Yes, measure the thickness ( caliper or micrometer)all the steel plates you have and the ones they sent specially for the adjustment.

By varying different thickness( try to put the most thick one on the bottom) you should achieve the movement of the pressure plate( pressing with fingers) of about .100
The more movement - the higher rom to engage, the less- the lower rpm and possible drag at idle. My idle is 1000-1100. Engagement is about 1200

Find the gold spot by playing around.

Slight drag is ok, when on the red light, shift to neutral, don,t keep in gear.

great stuff

i got it to where it creeps ever so lightly.. and she grabs just right.. waiting on the trans cover springs to bring that cable up.. the pedal does go up when giving gas but still has slack..
not much of foot clutch feel anymore.. slight touch of pedal to disengage clutch..

does all this seem about correct?

That spring will give a nice light feel to the pedal. I shift using clutch in the go , makes it nice, especially if you accelerate in civilized manner. However if you rev to max aggressively till the next shift, you may feel more resistance from the clutch pedal due to increased pressure from efm.

As far as slack concerned, there should be very minimal with cable adjustment.

Couple more thoughts :1) I adjust the pushroad bolt differently than instruction says: 1t I relax it, then I hold the autoclutch inner center in( clutch engaged) and screw the bolt in till touch down( mind you, the cable spring is installed and holding pedal and ramp in place), then back off 1/8-1/4 turn and lock it. Avterwards I make a minimal slack in the cable jacket adjustor.

2) the order of plates should have Kevlar to be the last one before the efm. even if it takes initially 2 steels on the bottom and alternating sandwich avterwards. If you end up having steel on the top, it will wear out aluminum efm which rides with outer hub( the steels ride with inner hub)

The spring i had recommended will add 20lb/ inch effort to already existing clutch spring(s).
Might become quite hard clutch pull .
I don,t think you wanna do that. Besides, it,s quite easy to just drain the trany and pull that cover out again and install the spring when needed.

I thought about that after I posted but didn't realize it would be that much. The whole reason for wanting the EFM is to give these aging hands a break .

At least now we know what spring to get when the time comes, thanks for that.
