    Throttle linkage

    Hi All
    I'm not too happy with my current cable throttle linkage and fear it will let me down in the future
    What i would like to do is replace it with a series of rods, ball joints, rotating bits and bell cranks but i cannot, despite some googling, find a UK supplier of the various components I would require.
    ideally I would like to view an online catalog to determine what I require (and what the bits are called)
    Can anyone help?
    Cheers

    B9023531-9585-42BB-994A-AE5C04ABEF84.jpegHi. I couldn’t get a cable throttle to run smoothly. To complicate things I have an auto box which requires a kick down linkage and ( because I am a paraplegic) I also need hand controls which means even more connections. I decided to go with rods and ball joints and the result is fantastic. It’s light and smooth to operate, very positive feel. I can take more detailed photos next time I’m in the garage but, in a nutshell it’s all stainless steel threaded rod and sleeve with neat bearings, ball joints an home made levers. Incidentally it looks very much like the throttle linkage on the original.

    That’s a nice bit of engineering that is. Proper.
