Excellent work. The explanations, along with the pictures are text book quality! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Since I have the same carburetor installed, I will borrow some of your ideas.

Thank you for the pictures, they helped a lot!

I just had one more request, I noticed that this carburetor uses exhaust fumes for the choke. I noticed that something was adapted to make it to manual choke. Can you tell me what parts you used and maybe take another picture, if possible? I got the linkage ordered from Ebay, should be here soon. I'm going to start fabricating some plates, to see if I can get this one going.

Thank you so much for everything you've done so far.

Hello, Esteban, looks like you have the same setup, by chance could you post some pictures of yours so I can borrow some ideas too? We can all help each other, I highly appreciate it!

You could also just run a wire from the ignition and do an electric conversion.

Well we went for a little ride today, Drove out to Tomales for the Founders Day Parade and Festival. 100 mile or so round trip.

It really likes it right about here.

Any faster and the top starts oil canning, any slower and there is a flat spot in the throttle response.

Congratulations! All that hard work and now you can take it out and play with it. :D That's always a rewarding feeling. The oil canning roof is highly annoying, I know. :roll:

Guess it has been awhile.
So I finely got fed up with the drivers seat moving around as I was driving.
So

I picked up a double locking slider.
Then modified the brackets to fit.

I then had to extend the stock release lever, and swap out softer latching springs. After some more trial runs I will cut the long arm off the new slider.

Then it will look stock. The seat is solid now, doesn't move around, and stays latched down.
