    Does anyone have an emergency brake pedal assembly off the car to be able to take a pic of the pedal return spring? I need to see where it attaches on each end. This on a 70 RS.

    Is this spring available any where?

    this is on an 80, not sure a 70 would be the same, there are many things unique to the 70 but hope this helps.

    be aware that the return mostly comes from the pressure of the e-brake springs inside the drum mechanism.

    There's no spring. Here's a pic of a 1976.

    Was gonna say...my 70 doesn’t have a spring on the pedal. The return pressure comes from the brakes themselves. I also don’t recall seeing a spring on the brake pedal either.
    Btw...the 70 Ebrake pedal assembly is unique. It also used a different park alarm switch.

    Thee is a spring that holds the ratchet lever in place against the teeth of the ratchet mechanism. My spring broke but as others have said the pressure from the e brake cable enables the ebrake to return when released. The only issue I have had is when the ratchet lever turns all the way over because it doesn’t have a spring to keep it against the ratchet teeth so it doesn’t lock when you depress the pedal. I simply reach down and relocate the lever back against the teeth and all good. Hope this helps
