Default Pedal return springs

If I were to assume that early full size Jeeps all used the same pedal return springs as the M715, would I be correct?

Brake pedal and clutch pedal, yes!

Gas pedal though, I dont know as the pedal is unique to the M715...not sure if the spring there is the same or not...

Brake and clutch is all I need for the moment. Brake spring snapped and I haven't found the end piece. Wasn't sure how to know when I found the right one.
Thanks once again!

Does anyone have a photo of the clutch and brake return springs mounting position under the dash?

I don't remember having a clutch spring under the dash, only the one down along side of the engine.
I will look tomorrow afternoon and post a few pictures.

As for the brake pedal return spring, I bought a spring from the local hardware store and modified it. My original was rusty and broken, just hanging there doing nothing.

You can see how the eye of the brake pedal return spring rides in the groove of the pin.
The other end (not seen) is hooked through a hole on a tab sticking down from the pedal bracket.




No clutch pedal spring, only the one down at the bell housing.

I thought about that last night. Without a brake return spring there's nothing securing the master cylinder rod onto the post. Guess it doesn't matter a whole lot.

Dan, the photos are very helpful. What is the brake spring hooked to on the dash side?
