Brake rod anti rattle return springs

Post by njcar757 » January 13th, 2019, 6:43 pm

Working on 29 AA brakes, there are 2 long return springs on front brake rods and 2 short return springs on 2 rear rods. If I order a 6 piece spring kit for the A car, will these fit the 29 AA ?
thanks nick c

As per the RGJS E supplement - All brake rod retracting springs were black enamel and were the same as those used on the A chassis. Refer to Area 7 of the RGJS.

So, if what you are ordering is actually the A chassis springs, then the answer is yes.
