Our tech session this year was a slideshow of pictures of neat things on hot rods. Hopefully you'll be able to use at least one idea on your current project, or even a future ride!

Tech Sharing – Intro
Welder Series’ parts are being used in lots of different ways. If you have digital pictures of how you used our parts, please email them to us. We will put a credit on your account (against future purchases – the credit has no redeemable cash value) of $5.00 for each picture that we use on our website and/or in our catalog. (Note that we might not use all pictures sent.) Please send pictures in .jpg format. Sending the picture gives us the right to use it.
In your cover email, tell us if we can use your name in the Tech Sharing text around your picture(s). We won’t give out your email address or any other personal info.
Tech Sharing is meant to inspire your imagination. Exact measurements will seldom be given because we build hot rods, not production line cars. Tech Sharing is not to be taken as an endorsement of the application. You should decide that for yourself.
We hope you enjoy seeing what others have done and that you will take advantage of this offer.
Brake Pedal Return Spring
“Canuck” over on the HAMB sent me this information on a possible candidate for a brake pedal return spring. Here are the original dimensions of the spring (the one in the picture has been trimmed): OD = 1.655″, ID = 1.375″, Length = 3.575″, Wire Dia = .135″, 6 coils, Min length when coils bind = 2.768″, Compression = ~~ 22 lb.s/inch compression. Straight spring, no taper. This came off an ’89 Cadillac Fleetwood.
Thanks for keeping me in mind!
If you didn’t see my pedal return setup, here’s a picture:
Here’s a setup that Lowdown Hotrods made… it looks like they’ve used a tube threaded on to the booster plunger with a jam nut sandwiching an aluminum disc which holds the spring. You can always expect clean work from these guys! Check out their site for a whole bunch of project pictures.
