    Default Carb linkage

    carb linkage
    [Hi Dave,
    I Have the same carb to blower adapter like you have. I put my carbs on there and have a 12 1/8" center to center for my inline linkage. (problem) I can not find that linkage any where that has that 12'' size linkage.
    Where did you get yours from? Your's must be even longer.
    Thanks Bud, Troy]


    Troy,
    Here's a pic of my linkage. Mine is 12 11/16" c-c with only 1/16" between the bowls. Mine just consists of a flat plate to mount the throttle cable clip, a piece of steel rod with swivel Heim ends on each end for adjustment to connect the two carbs. You can make all this stuff yourself and get the Heim ends at a good hardware store. Dave

    Default Hex rod

    FastRat's right. The hex rod is even better. It thicker and aluminum, has female threads for the heim ends. Jocko

    Any reason some of you guys like to run the carb's inline vs sideways? Is it just because of the linkage or is there an advantage to one? Maybe the way they feed the blower??

    Thanks

    I run mine sideways on my tunnel ram to make jet changes easier. Who wants to pull a carb just so you can change jetting?

    I agree, it is easier to change jets with the carb's sideways, however once I have my jetting dialed (for a lake boat) it seems they rarely have to be changed again. If so, I can have that one carb off in about 3 minutes. When mounted in-line, I do like the simplicity of the linkage (substantially cheaper), the routing of the throttle cable under the motor and up from the rear of the motor, plus simpler (again cheaper) carb bowl fuel lines.

    I think it's easyer with linkage, looks clean, less bends in the fuel line. Fuel comes up and in fuel log and straight into carbs not up and over and around. Thats just what I think.

    Is there an advantage for having a push throttle?

    Nice! Yes, that is a very sano setup. On a tunnel ram, the #107 linkage ($125.00) clears everything better and bolts right to the intake. On a blower you have to mess with spacers and stuff off the blower studs. PIA

    Thanks jocko I tried to keep it neat. That linkage was about $65 from Enderle and then the Morse cable holder was about $5 from Rex Marine. The throttle, regulator brackets and the top were custom made.
