I don't think qualifies as a "farkle" but at $2, the price was right. While picking up some groceries this afternoon, I stopped at th hardware store and picked up this lightweight spring for the clutch throwout arm on the Ural. When I was checking the clutch adjustment, it seemed "vague". I am used to pulling in the clutch lever and feeling the contact of the throwout bearing and the clutch. On the Ural, there isn't a light spring to pull the clutch arm away from the mechanism. Plus, while the engine is running you can see the arm vibrate a lot. Nothing that a $2 spring can't solve.
The bigger challenge was finding a light enough spring at the hardware store as it doesn't take much force to pull the arm back. One end is simply hooked over the clutch throw out arm and the other is hooked on the backside of the battery mount. Not much of a mod but the clutch lever no longer has that vague feeling as you can now easily feel how much free play you have. I remember that Dom had also added a spring and it's one of those things that make a lot of sense.
I doubt that other Ural mods will be as reasonably priced. A few items have been ordered ;-)
The weather today was on the warm side. Almost too hot. All I really had time for today were some local errands and some shopping to pick up something to throw on the grill later in the afternoon. Bridget hired a painter to prep and paint the dining room but there was a lot of junk to move and sort through. Cabinets to come down and a wall mounted desk to remove.
Here is my grandson helping to pull off the multiple layers of old wallpaper and paneling that have probably been there since the house was buiilt in the mid-70s. What a mess.
