All kinds of work had to be done before this was done. The list is way too long to list, but int includes stringer work, engine work, a new transmission, all upholstery vinyl work, you get the idea.
Well I sure am glad I took photos of this stuff. When you take something apart you always figure youll be able to remember how to put it back together again. However, when it turns to several months, things get a bit foggy. Did that drive arm go in perpendicular to the handle or parallel to the handle? Beats the heck outa me!
Fortunately these photos took care of the questions. Things didnt bolt up perfectly though, because I am running a different carb and the drive arm on the carb is a little different. All it took was a little adjustment on the threaded rods. As you can sense. Things are getting ready for a test run.
Pretty slick how this works. One lever causes the motor to idle down before you can change gears. As the lever changes gears the throttle part is held up on that dull red armature, to it wont really affect the throttle as it rotates a little. However, by switching into gear and continuing to move the lever, you can get increased rpm as you continue to move the lever (in forward or reverse). Very simple, very slick.
