throttle linkage


Recommended Posts

I finally finished the throttle linkage on my '75 using a Lokar 36" stainless braided cable. I fabricated three brackets, one off the motor, utilizing the old bolts from the mechanical fuel pump, one inbetween the two carbs to sync them, and one down below (from above) on an extension from the pedal box. They work perfectly, and there is no play in the metal, cause its thick, and welded well.

Here's some pictures:

As far as the connection to the pedal goes, there was convenient placement. The end of the throttle cable fit nicely after taking out the rod system (sorry no pics!).

For actually connecting the cable to the carb, my carb conveniently came with a small slotted turning system. The throttle cable has the 36" steel sleeve, and inside is the cable, with a red ball at the end, that fits into the slot of the turning system on the car. I found a picture of another carburetor with the same device.

Chances are your carb probably won't have this. If not, keep looking around, there's ton's of great ideas on the site.

    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. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    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
