Can anyone prove me with the specification for part no ACH8508 i.e. the relaxed length of the spring and perhaps any other relevant info. The item is missing from my car and I am looking to source a replacement locally. There are not too many MG's in my area for reference, otherwise I have to wait until I have a reasonable value order to justify the postage charge.

Many thanks Alan

That portion of the handbrake assy is the same as the MGB and Moss shows the spring on the B handbrake to be 3" relaxed.
