  • Ratco throttle linkage

    Just completed installing the Ratco throttle kit. What a difference in throttle response it makes.
    Everything works so smooth and free I should be able to connect up the cruise control and get it
    to work again. Thanks Tony.

      Before you pull the trigger on the RATCO, just know that a correctly-adjusted, properly-greased stock linkage performs very well.

      Bob Danielson has a nice write-up on his site around refurbishing the stock linkage: http://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/CarbLinkage.htm

      (I did make my own cable throttle linkage as the original linkage was very worn, and no amount of adjustment/grease would compensate. I love it for its simplicity and smoothness - in particular, there is no lost motion in the system as there usually is with the stock linkage, something I really enjoy)

        Removing play from looseness at the cross shaft is another way of having quicker throttle response. Lots of bushings now available, but before then i used a bit of overkill with a pair of (self aligning) pillow block bearings with races pressed on to the shaft. Did this while the engine was out. Zero play here.

          +1 on the Ratco set-up. I had done a nice rebuild on my stock linkage but the Ratco set-up is still way smoother IMO.
