Pre-war Straight Pull throttle and Gnition
« on: 20 May, 2019, 19:30:57 »
Hi
I have managed to get all the bit together for the straight pull throttle and ignition controls on the handlebars for my W35-7. I have found an Amal document listing the size and position of the handlebar slot.  I have tested this on an old set of bars and it all works fine. What I am missing is the correct location for the 9/32" hole where the cables enter the handlebars. My instructions only say "on the outside of a bend is prefereable". Is there anyone who can give me the location of this hole. A picture would be great.
Thanks.

Gidday from N.Z.,
Is this of any relevance? Off my 1929 Sloper, but thought it might be similar to yours:

Let me know if I've messed up the sharing so you can't see it
Cheers, Bevan

No worries :)
Here's a photo from a run out a week or two ago.
