Good point Dave. I will check that out. Another thing thats a bit odd take a look at my third picture which shows the operating arm. It appears to be a long way away from the lever compared to yours and is losing a lot of motion when you move the lever on the column.

Good observation, Terry, and therein may be your problem. On my car the forward end of the link at the bottom of the steering column has a provision for length adjustment, assuming yours is the same see if you can shorten the length of the rod.

On my car the link from the cowl to the carburetor throttle valves has no adjustment, but if your does you might want to adjust that length as well. When you remove the clevis at the rear, the arm on the cowl should spring forward by the action of the coiled spring at the far end (by the hand throttle arm. Adjust to the shortest length which will allow the clevis to just enter the hole - this will give the maximum throttle stroke which you can check by holding the accelerator pedal to the carpet and then checking to make sure the carburetor throttle valves are fully open.

Dave,
I had time today to check out that clevis adjustment and as you correctly stated it was way off. I had to screw in the adjuster to it's maximum travel as the rod seems to be too long. I will take it off again at some stage to shorten the rod by increasing the bend in it, but for now everything is working fine.
Once again thanks for the help.

Terry, glad you're getting there. The link arm has a pretty significant offset bend in it which not only helps align, but of course shortens the effective length. Perhaps yours has lost some of the offset bend?

Best,
Dave
