Now that I've established that mechanically everything works I'll be refitting the front body work. One little job I've completed today is to design and manufacture a reliable throttle linkage for the 38 DGAS carb. The offerings online in most cases leave a lot to be desired, too flimsy and pulling the cable at funny angles. This one is 3mm and 5mm plate, the end result should be reliable as the cable is pulled straight at all throttle openings. This is also backed up with a hefty return spring which is must in my books. I once had a Rover V8 jam open at maximum revs, its no joke !
