Throttle rod/cable issue.


Go to solution Solved by John76,

Recommended Posts

Recently got stranded with no pedal response only to find out the metal rod on the throttle assembly from the carb to the firewall. Shorter rod that pokes into the firewall area and attaches to the carb. Has started intermittently falling deeper into the firewall area and undoing itself. 
running a 38 Weber. 
 

any ideas or solutions are appreciated! I am trying to attach a video as well

For future reference,  this month we will be producing our first batch of downdraft linkage kits for the Weber carburetors.  The kit will replace all of those worn components including all the parts from the firewall bracket to the carburetor throttle lever.  The firewall bracket will feature a Heim joint, the throttle lever will fit both 32/36 and 38/38 carburetors, the down-rod lever will be positioned away from the heater hose, and the entire assembly will be made with more robust components than the original versions.  Here's a few pics of the un-plated prototype version.

 

We'll post it on our website as soon as it is available.

Hallelujah! My current "temporary" solution has a bunch of friction, old springs and plastic zip ties.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books.

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
