    Hi All,

    I'm fitting a nice pair of period Webers and Jack Brabham 'Performance' manifold to my HA. I want to copy the neat linkage in this old photo. I believe it is of a Sebring Alpine? Has anyone got better shots of the linkage at the radiator end?

    Thanks

    Oliver

    This is how I did the Promotional HLM's duel Weber linkage. I took the linkage bracket from rear down draft Zenith.

    Fabricated a new Weber linkage bracket with a cut and weld process. Such that I could use the two inner mount points for the Weber carburetors to the intake manifold for the linkage engine mount.

    The mount was fabricated to receive a level horizontal linkage rod and a rear mount was fabricated to be fastened at the fender brace mount to firewall bolts.

    Standard Weber (adjustable) vertical linkage was used to connect to the throttle pedal linkage and rear Weber connector.

    Many thanks for those pics. Plenty of food for thought. Alrthough I'm going to try to extend the throttle rod to the radiator end of the head.
