Does anyone have any info on 51-54 Chevy truck Seat Adjuster Return Springs, GM 3698449? Mine are missing from my 54 stock bench seat. Parts book seems to call for two. One on each end. Any photos or info on an available reproduction would be great. Thanks

I think you're best bet would be to go to a junk yard and and get the parts you need from there.

Thanks Pete. I just found one at a junk yard for $5.

That is not junk (it was not discarded AND useless) - you really needed it - you should hold that parts yard in higher regard. shake

Good job on finding it, and, good advice, Pete

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engines are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. []

If you have one take it to hardware store and match it. The good news is you have one to compare.
