Does anybody have a picture or a diagram of both carbs with the linkage hooked up? I've been playing with it now for an hour, it sure would speed things up if I had a good picture or schematic.

Also does this look correct? The arm coming off the pedal shaft when the spring is on is pulled forward, and the pedal is high in the car. When it's hooked up to the carbs does that push it back? The spring will have a lot of tension on that way.

Your arrangement looks good, but are you sure that's the right spring? ISTR there were a couple of different springs used, depending on commission number.

Sorry I don't have any good photos, but this might help a bit:

I could be wrong with the spring, not sure. Thanks for the picture, I was not even thinking about the shaft connecting to the manifold.

Keith if you need more pics just ask. I could take some tomorrow of what I did ... assuming it might actually be correct. Cheers, Mike

Thanks all for the pictures I think I can get it figured out now. I do have one question though. The pivot lever assembly calls for "screw, set, pivot lever to manifold" part#HU0806. Is this just a standard 5/16-24NF bolt?

Yup, 3/4" long.
