Just got a '56 210 Townsman wagon, with the 265 Power Pack set-up. It came to me with a cobbled up (wrong) throttle return spring, which won't let the car run right. I have the correct spring ordered (I think!) but can't see where it attaches at the rear - the carb linkage attachment point. Feeling dumb. (I see the catch bracket for the forward end of the spring OK.)

Can someone provide a photo of the driver's side of a stock '56 Power Pack showing the carb linkage and - most importantly - the throttle return spring attachment point at the carb? Gotta get this set up right so I can drive properly! (I've ordered a Shop Manual and Assembly Manual so I can see this stuff for myself, but that'll be days getting here...)

It's the stock Rochester 7008737

Many thanks!

Sorry to hear about the linkeage.
I've got some photos of the linkeage for the 6 cylinder 235, but I guess they won't help.

Welcome to the site too.

That photo is perfect! Thanks, 557B210 - that's what I needed.

No, there's no rear spring - I was trying to say I'm looking for the "rear attachment point" of the single, (front) spring. So the drawing shows me there is a little hole in the front of the pivot linkage that my old eyes couldn't see! I'll go look harder right now.
