Is there such a thing ? I have a '65 dart ....it had the single master cylinder when I got it...and it was shot.
The previous owner had a throttle return spring to keep the pedal up.
I now have a dual m.c. and the usual changes that go with it....front disc , proportioning valve etc.
When bleeding the brakes , I found that the pedal doesn't want to return to what seems like the right height.
Should there be a spring in there to pull the pedal back ?
Am I missing something else here ?
Thanks again for your help,
John

From what I know there is not supposed to be a return spring. That would give a false since of having a good set of brake pads or a filled master cylinder, which in any case may get you into trouble down the road, if you add that throttle return spring back in under the dash.

Thanks gents. I am using an adjustable push rod and a relocated master cylinder , so I figure to do some more adjusting and see where this leaves me......but I won't be worrying about a spring.
And one less question leaves me a little better off than I was yesterday.
Ya'll rock !
