We’ve re-evaluated the throttle box based on the loaned one from Holland and came to the conclusion that our Mk 2 version had some issues that couldn’t be overcome, so we’ve had a rethink and gone to Mk 3 which we think is pretty much on the ball now. We’re now a bit further ahead than we were before with the incorporation of the u/c lever cable pulleys and associated spacers.

This looks relatively simple to make but was in fact a royal pain as they had to be made from a casting pattern and we had to source the oilite bearings for the roller.17052014819
