Throttle Rod Slop
Posted by: odda ()
Date: August 07, 2011 09:23AM

I have searched the site for a fix to my throttle rod slop, bracket hole is wore out larger than the rod size. I remember seeing some ideas with pics here, but now that I want to find them, well, no luck. Can someone remember, or show me how you fixed the slop between the throttle rod and bracket hole. I do not want to bend the rod.

Thanks,
Odda

Are NOS throttle cross shafts hard to find?

Cross shafts are very common. What motor do you have and year? Where are you located?

..you could try hacksawing thru the bracket,down to the cross-shaft,squeezing the hole together and MIG welding it together,making the hole a bit smaller..

You might also consider replacing the whole linkage with one of Roger's full bearing throttle linkages. Not a cheap fix, but very well engineered and no slop at all. Looks great too!

I've devised a way to install 3/8" oil-lite bushings on the shafts. Nothing gets cut. I hard braze the worn shaft and file it smooth and round again. I also braze the link arm holes shut and redrill them to remove slop. I also straighten the shafts, so that both ends are concentric and parallel.

This removes 99% of the slop. Once the linkage is painted again you can barely tell it's been modified from stock. You can sync your carbs and they will stay that way for a long time.

I do these as a service too, but I do not have enough cores to do an exchange. I need your linkage to modify. It's a hobby deal, so turn around is not next day service.
