Reversing Throttle


Post by puttin » Tue Jun 27, 2006 9:33 pm

Has anybody out there used a Hummer Throttle assembly to reverse from push to pull?? I hear all is same except dirrection. I want to put a CV or a Bendix carb on my Pan and retain the internal Throttle assemby. Thanks Mick Inniss :?

I found out later, that the reverse throttle sleeve (spiral) you're talking about wasn't Hummer. I don't think Hummer had the same diameter handlebars. Anyway that "reverse" spiral was actually made by Harley for the Servi-Car, for right-hand tank shift set-ups. The spiral 56220-58 is the "pull" type and yep, it's used for Bendix, etc. Although, whether you'd used the (-53) "push" type or the (-58) "pull" type would depend on which direction your coil and control wire came from. On a Bendix, with the rear positioned butterfly, you'd use the "pull" type (-58) if the coil/control wire came in from the top. If the coil came up from the bottom, to connect to the carburetor, you'd use the 56220-53 "push" type. The -53 "push" type is available from but not the -58. V-Twins work that come with their complete handlebar sets, you'd think. I tired to get JW to tell me how they fixed the ones with too small (metric diameter) of a core diameter, but he didn't reply to my question.
Those are the facts as I know them to be, today on June 30, of the year 2006. Vol. 2 has some '54-74 handlebar stuff in it.
