Stromberg Choke bracket Photo and diagram required...

PostPost by: mark030358 » Sun Feb 24, 2013 5:57 pm

I've misplaced the bracket and clip that holds the choke cable to the front carbs. I think its about 3/4" wide and maybe 2" long. CAn some one send me a photo and dimensions of said bracket as I think I'll have to make one.

I did post in the wanted section to see if anyone had a spare, but no response.


Thanks

Ah-ha! I take it that this the bracket that holds the extra bit of cable you need to operate chokes on both carbs? My Europa only has operation on one carb at the moment but I have thought of changing it.

If so, many thanks Even though I didn't ask the question!

Well I have sourced a bracket, so now just a couple of things I need.

First, can someone post some good close up pictures of how the cable connects to both front and rear carbs please.

Second, is the choke cable a contiouous length from the dash through the front carb and finally to the rear one? If so do we have a length for this please. I have seen several posts that quote between 1.5 and 1.7 metres.

thanks in advance
