Clutch return spring

Has anyone experimented and pulled the return spring out from the clutch pedal? i guess my question is does the clutch master cylinder have enough pressure to push the pedal back without that spring?

i'm walkin with a limp over here because my left leg is stronger than the other

I removed my spring after I installed a south bend clutch and it still works without any problems

is there a particular reason why you can pull that spring out with the south bend versus the stock clutch?

the clutch pedal will stick to the floor with the southbend when you have a load on the drive line..... I had to pull mine the first time I towed my trailer after I installed the southbend...

The bracket on the firewall that holds the return spring along with the pedal broke on me today and the spring and part of the bracket fell out. Do I have to fix it or will it be ok without the spring?
