What is this and what does it do? The bigger outer spring is not hooked to anything??!!
It's an extra throttle spring. Looks like it's taken off of a gasser.
Here's my throttle setup, for comparison.
Op's linkage looks to have an additional bellcrank???
+1 on above.
Better pics without springs on for comparison?
What the heck? This is a diesel...good lord...can I send you a pic of the engine? Tell me what you see oh wise one!!!!
Thank you for looking at the pic, but I have no clue what you are talking about....trying to learn though!
Just take a pic from higher up, like mine, and post it here.
There are much wiser eyes than mine, here.
The more eyes that can see it, the better.
The end of that spring goes in same hole as the other spring it surrounds. Kick-down for C6 tranny
Younger and sharper also!
Get a pic in between the 2 not at 8 feet and not at 8" ...
I don't think I was standing 8 feet from the truck when I took my picture.
Op's not yers
He should replicate your ip photo!
What does it do? and should it be hooked back up? Thanks for looking...appreciated!
Fill in your sig line with the statts on your truck so we know what we are dealing with..
Pull the extra springs off the ip, take a detailed pic of the linkage. (Like seldo')
The c6 kickdown rod goes from the linkage to the tranny.
Bellcrank is a fulcrum type lever.
It is factory, on all of mine, so should be attached. Use a pair of needle nose pliers or hemostats to wiggle it back in there. Not hard to do. You are doing really good at checking out the small stuff there.
Mine are all non-turbo & I put a rubber mat over the air filter covers to keep water out of the intake.
I think I did the sig thing right...this is all new to me!
Nooooo....not gonna pull springs off. I know absolutely nothing about this...told ya I'm a cowgirl and trying to get on the right trail to someone that is able to eval. I have contacted Conestoga Diesel here in Pa...they are on vacay until the 8th and replied by email promptly! So I am just looking at things and noticed this spring was not attached(detail is my line of work..dentistry!)
