s3 carbs

Recommended Posts

Would somebody be kind enough to photograph the throttle cable linkage as it gets to the carbs - i took it off to rebuild the carbs and have put it all back together again and it looks wrong ....

thanks in advance and ill take better photos next time !

ok found a couple of quick pics i took ages ago, i have also shown the route the cable takes with yellow marks, i hope this helps.

first one is from underneath the assembly shows where the black cable with the wire throttle cable in goes into on the bracket with the holder in place then through the otherside and goes in to the small hole in the connector on the carb and is then clamped into place.

HI Si,

I'm not certain but doesn't the Turbo have a different setup to the N/A?

You're more than welcome to give her a polish. Just rebuilt the carbs and they are substantially cleaner now...^^that was a before pic. But the fact is that you're looking at an engine that's done 50,000 miles since it was last cleaned and as long as she goes as well as she does I'm really not fussed how shiney she is!!...but you're still welcome to pop round with your can of Mr Sheen :devil:

as long as you pre book the mot, you are allowed to drive the car to the mot station, once you have your mot you can drive it home but not anywhere else if i remember rightly, you cant say drive it to the post office to get your road tax as while its parked up you could get done for no tax!
