so i was trying to adjust the vacuume 2ndarys and nothing was happening there was never any tension on them... yet the flap stayed closed.... and now i know why... age got to the spring... it was twisted and mangled...... sooo... anyone have a tension spring and lock nut for that? .... didnt have a good enough grip... lost the lock nut in the old emission gap... not my day... and no i didnt lose it because it went flying... there was absolutely not tension on it or the adjusting screw what so ever....

Any way to get one of those telescoping magnets into the opening and retrieve the lock nut?

im sure i could if i had one small enough to fit lol.... still need a new spring tho... know anyone who has one to spare? actually even if i did i dont think it would do any good pretty sure that lock nut is aluminum like the airhorn so it wont freeze up.

Oh, well, just a suggestion. I don't have a clue where you'd find replacements. Good luck with it. Maybe someone here can help you out.
