Come back to M51L

#1

Post by matt45 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 9:49 am

I would like to install a Linkert M51L on my '39 UL but would like to keep the pull throttle, I found that a v-twin kit (snap throttle # 350504 ) is available but only for OHV models from '49 to '65) and I didn't find any topic concerning pull throttle for Flathead Big Twin... any idea.. :?:

Just use throttle lever off an ohv linkert and it will pull instead of push, both my flatheads are set up this way.

Couldn't you just turn the bracket to the other side? That would make it pull instead of push... haven't done it just thinking.....

Yes but its a pull not with the original rigid throttle cable but with modern cable ...

Throttle linkage can be easily fabricated. No special equipment needed.

^^^^^ Yea just what I was talking about....^^^^^^ I didn't think you had a stock throttle...... Why would you be asking about a pull if you did???

Currently I have an old bendix on the Ul, so I just want to keep the pull throttle and cable...for my next Linkert..
