View Full Version : TR2/3/3A TR3A Choke cable hook up

The only thing that I have to do with the carb pre-start set up, is hook up the choke. I'm sitting here looking at the Practical Hints booklet and I see how the choke cable goes and where it goes. My problem is I can't see where the actual cable hooks up. Can someone help me with this problem?

Thanks, Tinkerman

Where the horizontal rod joins the bottom of the lever on the front carb, there is a special double-ended pin. One side is smooth and takes a cotter pin to hold it in place through the lever and clevis. The other side is threaded for a nut. On the threaded side, there is a hole through the center. The inner part of the choke cable goes through the hole, then tighten the nut to lock the inner cable to the pin.

Randall, that was great and very timely. I went into my computerized store of parts and got a hit on "choke cable pin assy" I was sitting here trying to figure out how it went when I got your post.
Thanks, Dick

Forgot to add, that drawing is from Bob Schaller's "More BS on TRs". Bob is no longer with us, but I believe reprints are available from TRF.
