I need a good pic of the throttle return spring bracket that holds the spring to the carb mount bolt. This would be for the "A" code Autolite 4100 carb. I need to know how the little tabs are bent to secure the bracket.

Don't have a picture for you, but it's a simple L-shaped bracket with two holes: one that accepts the rear-most carb stud, and one that accepts the spring. You simply rotate it around the carb stud to increase/decrease spring tension after the spring is attached to the bend in the throttle rod.

OK, but what about the two "prongs" that are at the end of the base where it bolts to the carb. Are these supposed to bend down to hold the bracket from turning after it's set?

I dunno...I don't think mine has prongs.

Experts? What say you?

I examined my bracket and there are no retaining prongs on it. I haven't a clue as to whether it is stock or not, but I suspect it is. The NPD catalog shows a variety of brackets, and none of them have retaining prongs.

The spring bracket on my 289 2V is slotted on the end, the rib on the carb fits in this slot to locate the bracket.

NPD and Va Mustang sell the correct bracket for a 4100, it has a tab that sticks down to keep it aligned with the base of the carb.
