THROTTLE AND CHOKE CABLES
Use a bicycle brake cable for the throttle cable. Ensure it has a solderless nipple to connect to the accelerator foot pedal. If the throttle cable fouls the underside of the bonnet where it’s connected to the carbs because the angle of the connection points upwards, fit a 90-degree throttle linkage connection from the R1, which can be sourced from a motorbike breakers yards or aYamaha dealer. A manual choke cable needs to be fitted, which can be operated from inside the car. Use an old choke cable and sleeving.
Chester Sports Cars sell an adaptor kit for £12 which works with the car’s existing throttle and choke cables and includes a return spring, cable fittings and solderless nipples.
