Question, what acts as a return spring on the parking brake handle (twist)?Inside the housing is a coil spring a triangular shaped heavy washer a verythick wave washer and a thin skid washer. When I turn/twist the handlethere is no spring return for the handle. I can pull out the handle and thehandle will stay out if I turn it left. I then turn right and the handlecan be pushed in. But there is nothing to keep the handle from turning.The only thing I can think of is to put a twist in the short cable from thehandle to the pivot arm.Bruce Rockwell'64SC Karmann coupe
Dear Bruce, The spring action is crested by how the cable end is put into the levernext to the steering box. The normal situation is that the handle is more orless level when you pull it out and you need to twist it CCW about 90degrees to release it. If your handle is not springing back, remove theclevis pin in the end of the cable, rotate it 180 degrees in the directionto keep the handle rotated into lock. If the handle does not lock asdescribed let me know and I can explain how to assemble all the parts of thelocking mechanism.Sincerely,Alan,The Stable, San Francisco
