Twin Carb Linkage

Post by ASW »

Hello one and all,

I remember seeing that there was a fancy new linkage system on the market, I cannot remeber who was supplying it.
Can anyone remember ?
Trying to get the bus super reliable for the trip to Mallorca in April.

Thanks

Adam

I am guessing not a lot from your reply.
Cretainly a lot better looking and sturdy than my current set up though.
I am looking into both as a repleacement.

I'll get my coat.

The Berg setup is very easy to setup on different setups.
I have used it with great success:

Yep, started putting drawings together for Jenvey TB's for Jen's bus.

Different linkages work with different levels of success depending on the carb setup.

Made good progress on this last week, and got to printed a prototype which just needs a couple of minor changes.

Jenni,

Don't worry - I'm aware. :)

I made the updates to the bracket design today; will check a print tomorrow, and then start the process of getting a batch made next week.
