Thank you

I know this is resurrecting an old thread, but it's helped me a bunch just now. While installing and attempting to synchronize the secondaries I have with the 1966 spring-style linkages, I had no trouble getting the driver side secondary to open fully at the same time as the primary (I have all 4 primaries with no lockout). However, the passenger side was another story. While I thought I had it where it was opened fully at the same time as the primary, I closed the throttle again and opened it back up only to discover the secondary was only about 3/4 of the way open!confused smiley I played with it some more with the same results. After investigating, I noticed how much play there is with the linkage, so I got on here to search for solutions and found this set of posts. Needless to say, I'm heading to the hardware store tomorrow and thanks to everyone for the great tips!

Found this old post, but, did not see if anyone explained the best way to disable the secondary lock outs. Ideas?

You can just remove the tiny link rod and the cam/hook that would prevent the throttle from opening. If you are removing the carb, you can take of the rod through the secondary, but remember to plug the holes in the carb top.

I am working on a cool set up using 3/8" Cold rolled steel and HEIM joints and some cool aluminum levers from Speedway motors for a solid cross shaft. I am still in the design phase but I got the Primary's hooked up and they work good, still working on the secondaries.

Had to make the bends myself, The little tabs for the primary's are off of the original shaft, I just heated it up and pulled them off and brazed them onto the new sold steel cross shaft.

I also made the bends taller so it was further away from the pully.

I really like the fact that Corvair owners are a hands on/DIY group of folks. It is definitely this spirt that is needed in society at large. Keep up the tinkering everybody, because it is an empowering feeling to exhibit control over the situations in our lives. I guess this is why the home garage exists. Cheers everyone! ????

Had mine on the road for 4 years with factory linkages, no problem.
I would bet that GM in 65 made this change because of more than customer complaints.

Would not want to pull out with a partially warm motor with this setup and have it bog down with oncoming traffic....eye popping smiley
