  • Accelerator Linkage Set,

    Hi,
    I am getting my carbs ready to send to Ken for a rebuild. I have also found there is a lot of play in the linkage. I know there is a Ratco cable option. Does anyone have experience with Goodparts Accelerator Linkage set? It is a bit pricey. Is it worth it? any other recommendations?
    thanks
    john

    John, make sure you check your accelerator shaft bearings. They wear and add slop. Someone, I don't remember who, makes a set that several people on the forum have said is very good.

    I cant speak to the Goodparts linkage but anything of his that I have is excellent. I have the Ratco cable and it operates very smoothly. You will also be very happy with the carbs after Ken works his magic on them.

    You could also tighten up the stock setup. It's very responsive when in good nick. Probably the cheapest option, too.

      I cleaned up my stock linkage (there was lots of crud in the ball joints, etc) and replaced the shaft bushings - it's really smooth now and I've decided not to switch to the cable approach at least for the time being. The only problem that I encountered is that I lost part BC23 and had to make up my own stop http://trf.zeni.net/TR6bluebook/44.php

        Annual maintenance for me is a thorough cleaning of the control rod linkage. The ball/sockets always get crudded up over time.

          Good job, Derek. There is usually more satisfaction in making something or fixing something than in buying something.

              Just discovered the site is up and running again!
              Thanks for all your comments. I think I will go ahead and see if I can refurbish the stock linkage. The passenger side accelerator shaft bearing is essentially disintegrated and I will be replacing those as well.
