    Shipper showed up just before 5. He had it loaded in 10 minutes and then headed west.

    I hope you enjoy it when it gets there Buddy.

    Thanks for letting us play with it.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Question….

    I noticed on the last video that you don’t use a spring from the throttle bar centre bracket back to the body …as a return spring.

    I have my new Type 4 2 litre motor with 40 Webers ,in and thumping.

    The current setup has the return spring fitted ,however it does make the accelerator pedal a bit heavy going.

    Should I be able to run without the return spring ala Buddy’s  bus

    Hey Kim, there are secondary return springs on Buddy’s engine…I put one on each of the carburetors, a little spring between the air filter base and throttle shaft.

    That way we avoid putting spring pressure through the linkage bar.

    Thanks Franz. That’s a great innovation.I’ll give it a try.

    Is the top of the spring held by a split pin through the base of the air filter ?

    …..you know the deal

    detail ,detail ,detail !

    Cheers
