I installed them in several A's & B's over the years with completely positive
results and mileages of 20k-40k on them so far. James probably had the highest
number of miles accumulated on his roadster when we pulled the clutch. His
T-O Bearing looked, felt and sounded fine. I had never heard of using a return
spring at that time, so none of my installations had one.
