Default 65/66 200ci throttle return spring

Anyone have a photo of the throttle return spring on a '65 Mustang with a 200 6 cyl? I need the locations of where it hooks & spring type.

Thanks

Dotman,
I guess your talking about the one from the exhaust to the carburetor. I think I have one. I'll take a look at my photo's of my 66 6 cyl. and try to post.

I thought I had a better picture but this was the only one I could find. Hope it helps. Spring connects to exhaust and in the hole of the throttle lever.

Twight65, From your picture I see a vacuum tube that hooks up for
the manifold, is that tube for the vacuum on the auto trans or for the
power brake booster? If it's for the brake booster do you have pictures
of it?
Thanks.

It's the tube for the auto transmission. No power brakes on this car. sorry I couldn't help.

Yeah that Spring setup looks correct... However, I have never seen a 200 exhaust manifold like that one! What is the HEX fitting on the bottom of the exhaust manifold? and the Rectangular attachment at the back. It does not look like an original '65-'68 200 Exhaust Manifold...Non-IMCO or IMCO...

I think that Exhaust Manifold came out of a later '70's or 80's Ford Truck!!

Does anyone know what it is from?? Ok, Let's play "What's that part??!"....lol...

Tony,
Your right it's not the original. Though I purchased a correct one for my restoration. Your dates are a little high. Anyone else?

For the return spring being discussed, I bought a new one and the tension is high. How would I relieve the tension of the spring?

The trucks would have had the big 300 six. I'd guess a mid-70s Granada or Maverick with thermactor.
