The single spring is weak so they use a double. There are better return spring arrangements but you do need their bracket or make up one at least similar. I have the throttle, kickdown and cruise on the same bracket with some mods and use their spring, but am using a C4 instead of an AOD

That's a nice looking engine installation - those valve covers, but fully polished would look nice on my '31 but will not clear the roller rockers so they sit on a shelf
