very carefully? :grin: With a socket and a rubber hammer.


Yep! Me too! I see how that tool would help. So is this one of your tool fabrications?

No. Found it in thedrambadotcom's gallery, but will surely make myself something similar. :cool:

Because there's a BIG problem binding it somewhere. :roll:

All that bandaid does is make it harder on the foot and more likely than not, agravate the problem. :smt018

Anyway, aside from the wrongful spring, I posted the pix to show the really kool homemade "L" bracket. The use of the "ball & socket" coupling must make for a more direct throttle response. :-k


While we're at it, I'll say this again: the throttle pedal-cable-linkage combo should return to "rest" position solely with the pull from the carburator return spring. Also move so free that the pedal should just drop on its own weight once you unhook it from the carburator! :neutral:

being there is a sheet of metal between me and the car in front of me, the last thing I want is a better throttle response. LOL It is a cool L bracket though.

That only applies if you're looking to plow into the cars in front of you! ;-)
