Does anyone have a source for this coil spring..  PN also if you have it.  Also is the butterfly welded or screwed to the shaft.  Thanks, Charlie

You might ask - do I really need this thing?  On both of my Y's I have removed it and used an aftermarket spacer in place of it.  No issues in warming up.  If you have a concours car then I can see the need.

In the catalogs I have, I don't see any repair parts - new units are available.

I tried to buy one recently from two large parts suppliers in western Canada, including NAPA & was told, no longer listed. Concours Parts was listing them a few years ago for about $75.00  U.S.+ shipping.  I can get by without it, but then for winter, can't set the choke/fast idle to work properly.

I must have thrown dozens of those things away over the years.  Then again, I don't live in Canada,

Thank you (all) for your input. My car is not going to be a concours and it does have a hand choke. Im going to move it to Rochester N.Y. and i`m ok with the hand choke. If I go back to the automatic choke. I can live with leaving the heat riser valve out.. Thanks, Charlie.

If you live that far North and you actually use the car, you do need the valve (IMO). If you rely on just the choke to richen the mixture, the additional fuel needed will puddle on the floor of the intake leading to carbon fouling.

GOOGLE B5A 9685-E and you will find a NOS valve.

1955 BIRD 292 DUALS, right?

The spring itself is a bi-metallic deal, and nothing too particularly special. Look for one for a jeep on Fleabay, they are under $10

As I mentioned, they whole unit is available aftermarket if you find you actually need one.

I have a hand choke on my 54 (312) and haven't experienced any problems using only it on cold days for start up.  Unaware of any carbon problem.
