Yesterday he came by. Arm in a sling. Looking for the stuff to make a throttle cable.

I asked which car he took to the emergency room. He said the jeep. I asked why not the blown 55 gasser. He said he already took the suicide knob off and it would be too hard to hold the wheel with the broken arm so he could shift with the other.

The suicide knob was there so he could drive it when he severed the tendon in the hand last year.

Whats really funny is that I know him well enough to know he considered driving it anyway. Driving to the emergency room with an arm broken in 5 places. He thought he should go to the emergency room because "that dont look right"....

75 going on 17.

Ah well, chicks dig scars. Hope it mends quick so you can get back to it, but sometimes sit & think time is good for progress.

Could've been worse, you could've kicked it out of the way with your starting foot.

Put my modified crankcase vent in...

And routed the hose back under the bike....


Looking at how to route and hookup the throttle cable...
Throttle closed...


Throttle full open...


I'm in no hurry now, have to wait for this busted arm to heal !
But I'd love to fire it up and hear it run...

Those snap throttles work well, I have them on both of my pans but I used a different spring & rigged the spring to pull from the other side...
Sorry to hear about your arm also.

Borrowed some Indian Head shellac from Jaws....

It seems to have a much thicker consistency than the Bulls Eye shellac does...
Gave it 24 hrs to cure....

And dunked it in some E10, 93 octane....

Lets see how it holds up....

Here is how I rigged it, the trick is to find the spring that fits under there and feels good on your wrist. Also I flip flopped the throttle cable cover so it sends the cable up instead of out, you can see it on the end of the bracket.

You can get online or at hobby shops. I've used it the past on the gas tank necks to stop paint from lifting.
Everyplace I've checked is 'discontinued' , 'out of stock', or 'call for availability'...
It's as if it's not being made anymore....

I have this two part stuff that aircraft factories use to seal fuel components, and the inside of the wings, it dries like a stupidly hard rubber. It's resistant to just about anything. I got it from a friend who works at the factory, but it's unbranded. I'll try to find out more about it, but aircraft fuel parts suppliers might be a good way to go.

Have a look at a product called "Seal -All" can be found at hardware stores and auto parts stores. It's supposed to be ethanol proof, but I would like to see how it stands up to your test
