    I just crawled under mine to look. '70 04D Norwood Z. I've had the car 20 years and never had the box out. Can't get a pic, but I can see the spring on top

    As I move that lever from left to right at about 3/4 of the way it does have a snap effect like it is helping. I can see the spring stretch as I move it. No way for me to measure the length though. I might be able to get a rough idea of the OD tomorrow.

    No way for me to get anything up there to measure the diameter of the spring, 6 inch rule or otherwise. Looks to be 3/8 Dia.

Should we have that bracket and spring on the heater box? Here is the box I received from a forum member and it appears as though that bracket was in place.

    Also why do I have those for holes on each side of the door where as on the heater box in this thread I don’t see those for holes?

    ^^^ Here is my original rebuilt heater box, car is an 05E build date. Those 4 holes should not be there...mine also has the spring, I think it might be a late addition to production as it would seem the early cars don't have the spring.
