Oh, and we made the throttle cable wheel attachment at the carb, but I forgot to take a picture of that.

Also decided to see if the original driveshaft still fits. Inexplicably, it does...

You can resize them in Paint first. 👍

 

I know, I've actually done it before (believe it or not!).  But the picture really was crap and really didn't show what I wanted it to show.

Built the throttle cable system and installed the carb today.

One other minor modification to add to the list, though. Throttle return spring works great, but was rubbing the hose at anything more than 1/2 throttle. Took that hose off and replaced it with a longer hose and that fixed the issue...

Also, this was a temp install to sort the cable, hence the missing screw in it, and overall grottiness.  😁

 

I cleaned and painted the pedal after that photo was taken, and will get some new screws for it tomorrow. 👍

throttle cable looks great

 

Thanks.  We were a bit worried about the circuitous route, but couldn't find anything shorter, so we went with this.  I think it turned out ok... not anywhere near as embarrassing as I feared!

I wasn't going to say anything, but it's the first picture on the page and I see it every time...

 

Can anyone guess what bothers the crap out of me in this picture?

the trunion being black or the rusty bolt holding the carb to the adapter?

I remember having the choice of black or silver for the wheel (and, apparently, the choice of bolts as well) so that one I will claim (the bolts, however, I do NOT recall being consulted about!😝).

Also, the radiator hoses arrived today.  I will have a look at installing them on Saturday... probably... unless I just feed the shop cats and go home.  We'll see.

 

So, I took these

Cut them until they would do this

And I only hate them a little bit.

 

I still need two more hose clamps to finish this job, then I get to replace the cheap Chinese knockoff "EFI style" clamps that keep popping their heads off!

You picked them.  😁

 

I really think I would have picked these

had I been given a choice. 

 

Maybe I wasn't paying attention when you asked.

Well, you're half right. I did not ask when I installed them, because they were the bolts you had already installed. I just took it apart to install the gasket between carb and spacer, then simply reused what you had installed previously.  😁

Oh sure, if your going to use, "Those are the bolts you put in there," as your definition of, "You picked them," then fine!  Be that way!😐

Well, I for one am glad that is settled. Thought this was going to turn into DatzenMike saying "Don't you kids make me stop this forum" type of thing.

The oil line hoses..... what pressure are they rated at? (they look like heater hoses) Are they rated to handle petroleum exposure? Mine are rated for 250 PSI a good safety margin.

 

The rear calipers are big enough for use on the fronts. The rears only provide maybe less than 30% of the stopping power of the fronts as weight lifts off them reducing traction, and onto the fronts increasing traction on the tires. Will these lock up first now? Have you thought about an adjustable proportioning valve?

Rated for a constant 95psi, and will never see that. Max psi/burst pressure was not listed.

They say "Engineered with materials to resist chemical degradation". But they will be checked (and/or changed) regularly.
