totally confused..torsion clutch pedal spring

I am totally confused... My Torsion Clutch Pedal Spring broke and the replacement is a different size and wont fit. This is for a late 94 or 95 clutch on a R380. The replacement that I have is LR part# EDP7510L (again it is the wrong size).

Here are some pics:

clutch torsion spring Broken Old on left New on Right NAS D90 (1st Pic)

clutch torsion spring Old on Left New on Right NAS D90 1994 (2nd pic)

I also included a couple of generic pics to show you more of what I am talking about (3rd & 4th pic)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, since 2001 this is my second clutch spring to break... So others may be in similar situation. Again any help/thoughts/suggestions are really appreciated.

Thanks,
Rufus

You may have the skinny clutch pedal arm and they provided you with the spring for the fat clutch pedal arm.

Here are the differences.

Josh, thanks for the input - I definately have the skinny clutch pedal arm and not the fat. Mine is a late NAS 1994 so I believe it is the same as a NAS 1995.

Matthew, I am sure one of those generic pics is from a ROW, I just used that pic to help illustrate what the clutch spring looks like on the clutch pedal.

someone has to have an idea on this one. anyone with an R380 come across this before? I am thinking this spring is the same regardless of NAS or ROW.

THANK YOU George at RDS! I measured my broken spring vs. what he had in stock and he has the right size. What a nice guy.

old post new insight

I was originally totally thrown off by the 2 different spring sizes and when I got the small spring, I thought I got a series part or something.. Anyways, I ended up getting 2 springs (sm size and original size) and have been using the spring that was the original size as the replacement all this time. I had the smaller one kicking around and for kicks installed it. As it turns out, the smaller spring works just fine if not better. It makes the clutch pedal seem a little more stiff which I like.


Anyways, I just thought I would follow up in case anyone else was confused by 2 different spring sizes under the same LR part number.

BTW - since 2001 I have had 2 of these springs break, so it is a good spare part to have kicking around. Also a good idea to get new nylon bushings when replacing the spring

Yes, the smaller spring works fine. I had this issue on my late 94 and scratched my head for a second and then just fit the smaller end spring george (or RN I forget) sent me.

The early pedals (SII up to late 94 -- as shown in post #2 above) do not have the coiled spring like that, they have the long thin spring which clips to a tab on the bulkhead.
