(CABLES HAVE BEEN REPLACED ). THE LEVER IS SPRING LOADED BUT IS THERE ALSO ANOTHER SPRING SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE CALIPER TO HELP IT RETURN...IF NO OTHER SPRING THEN IS IT KNACKERED .

    I think there is a long spring that goes through the cable at the caliper end, well known for sticky calipers the 8l,s
