Default Weber throttle linkage

Hi. We have a 2 ltr. Pinto engined Fury. Twin 45DCOEs. The throttle actuation is of a downward action. This has caused a couple of scary moments with sticking inner cable.
Now, I appreciate that this is more of a set up issue than of an inherent fault ,. But I feel that the set up is difficult to set up properly.

So, I bought an FAJS top mounting twin cable linkage kit. Yes, why buy that when the throttle works the other way? Well,. Faffing about under the carbs is a bloody nightmare, no room, can't see what you're doing etc etc.

So,. Fitting this linkage kit do I need to remove the butterflies and spindles, and turn them by 180 degrees to make the top actuation work?

Any advice on this gratefully received.

Not familiar with that carb but butterfly usually works with idle and progression holes so can't be turned around. Would look at possibility of turning the throttle operating crank around 180 degrees. Peter.

Peter. Thanks for that. However, it seems that I've been wrong about the actuation problem. The FAJS linkage actually does impart a downward action. I only discovered this after assembling the kit. I assumed that because the assembly was top mounted that it would work with a pulling action. Lesson:. Assume nothing.
