    69 sporty clutch release worm and lever spring

        What the heck does that spring attatch to on the release assembly? One end is hooked to the release lever but I can't see anything for the other end of the spring to hook to!    The spring is #5 on the manual blow up 4B-6.    HELP PLEASE!!

    bo - I just checked my manuals and the only thing I see is an alignment roll pin on the cover - wouldn't think they would use that.

    FX - how good is your memory?

    Re: 69 sporty clutch release worm and lever spring

     Darn my old eyes!   I must have looked at Figure 4B-6 in the manual a hunnert times. Finally I seen, just above the kicker shaft hole, (in the manual), a little hole drilled into the support rib to hook the spring to.  My new sprocket cover doesn't have the hole.That's what threw me. I watched a YouTube Tatro video of him putting together a sprocket cover on a 61 sporty motor. He never bothered putting the spring in the assembly. Don't know if he forgot or it's just not needed. I'm putting mine in. Thanks guys, for responding!!! I'm sure I'll have more questions for all y'all down the line.

    Now that you mention it Bo, a picture would have refreshed my memory. Glad you figured it out, and are using the spring...

     It attatches to a tiny hole in the casting web, hope the web is not broke.

      Hey Marv! Thanks for the response.The new aftermarket  cover didn't have the hole drilled in it. Had me scratching my head for a few days.
