Turns out that notch, in which the middle part of the torsion spring nestled into (just northeast of the spring in the pic above), rotates down when the pedal is pressed and back up again (on that axle with orange goop on it) when the pedal is released. When it does that, it ends up hitting the spring and making that ticking noise.
More concerning is when I was manually pushing and releasing the pedal with my hand, watching this crapfest unfold before my eyes, I can see the spring ever so slightly get hung up on that notch. My fear is that it gets fully hung up on it while driving.
Anyone else have this issue?
Anyone have a suggested fix? I highly doubt I'm ever going back to the torsion spring so I might just try to get a jigsaw up in there and cut the bastard off.
Please someone yell at me if that's a terrible idea.
