just acquired 1962 TR3 that had been garaged for approx 15 years, removed weber 45 dcoe and sent off for rebuild, need help with recommended accelerator linkage for this setup. the existing setup is terrible as there is virtually no response when depressing the pedal. any suggestions are welcomed

I used to have them on my TR4A, I've attached a few pictures so you can see what I did. I used the Ratco TR6 throttle cable kit, not sure how easily that could be adapted to a side screen car.

DARRELL - these look great! and it looks as though I could get rid of the mess between the two carbs that sync them together. I'm also impressed with your fuel line setup, could you share that info with me as well?
Thank you so much for your quick response - Jon

Thanks, Jon.

The fuel line is just rubber line with a stainless steel covering, and the clamps just compress when you tighten them up. I'll have to look around to see if I can remember where I got them. I added an electric fuel pump when I put the Webers on, and there was a pressure regulator by the firewall on the carb side of the engine. I just ran the fuel line up and across the firewall above the battery, rather than take the long way around the front of the engine.
