Throttling up the Carbs or (What the Heck was I Thinking...)
If your memory's good you'll remember I'm using a pair of 70+yr.old carbs. The first order of biz
is to come up with a fresh workable ball & socket set-up.

this is the butterfly shaft and that little ball thingee ain't gona work. It's worn out and wrong size for newer ends.

with some tiny welding of a Weber ball pivot, I'll be able to use EZ to find linkage parts. This is for the downstream
carb the throttle will be on the other side.

DSC01121.JPG

the upstream carb was sleeved with some brass tubing to mount the bell crank. I fabbed it from 1/4'' alloy and threaded in some dandy allen head set screws.

thread up some alloy rod and some socket ends from Jeg's...and that gives you something that looks like this...

and the other side. The slight bend in the link bar allows for the carb offset keeps things looking parallel.

Lights.. Action...
the final bits of the wiring are done. The main box or as I like to call it the 'R-Unit' :IDTS: is anchored with Rivnuts
and has disconex to make it removable. Starter relay is at the top and brake light relay is at the bottom of photo.
Key works OFF-ON-ON/LIGHTS. Old Skool. Oh yeah :2thumbs
DSC06642.jpg

The main box sends power forward to here via internal wiring.
DSC06665.jpg

I made the tail light from aluminum plate with a little support Tigged in. Tail light is rubber mounted. I painted the license plate. It's done in 1949 (NGW) colors. Yes it's legal. Gotta love Texas.

All works !! Love it when a (2yr. old) plan comes together.

...the pipes the pipes are call-llin'

Well we must be getting close. Exhaust is always close to the bottom of the checklist.
the chrome headers were something I acquired somewhere. A pair of 45deg. 1 3/4'' tubes will
serve for some mild Zoomie dumps.
DSC06673.JPG

if I were smart I would have brazed them up and called it a day. Nope not smart.
DSC06678.JPG

here is the mock up from the underside. I'll save the side view for the finish.
DSC06676.jpg

So here they are prepped and headed to chrome (many days later) like I said, Not smart. Sooo much work.
