  1. My crossflow powered Westy has been off the road for quite a number of years (8 years) after it became afflicted with a bogging down on acceleration problem (only when warm) and so many "recommended" people took so much money off me without actually fixing the problem (not to mention causing hidden damage to the car), that I was forced to take the car off the road. This year, finally in a well (enough) paid job and not hopping between redundancies, I finally have the cash to start getting this thing back in working order, i've decided to stay away from rip off merchants and basically replace everything until the problem goes away. I've done a lot of work, but I'm stuck on a few very silly things, replacing the misab plates (which are fitted wrong and looking rather tired), cleaning/servicing the carbs and replacing the inlet manifold gasket. My problem is the throttle cable linkage, which requires two flat bladed screwdrivers which cannot be fit into the space available, attempts to remove the throttle cable have resulted in the damage seen (hopefully) in the pictures below. I can't remove the misab plates without getting the carbs out of the car and I can't do that without releasing the throttle cable. If I attempt to carry out this job without removing the carbs from the car, i'm probably going to end up damaging the brake lines or the dizzy. Basically I didn't build the car and this is some silly DIY throttle cable linkage and everything is in the way of everything else...... It's like a jigsaw puzzle. Alternatively, if I have to cut through that clamp (I can't find anything like a replacement), i'm thinking of using a bolt and a lock nut to replace it, then a wire rope thimble and some wire rope clamps to create a loop at the end of the throttle cable. Does anyone know of another way I can do this? Does my "solution" sound reasonable? Assistance greatly appreciated!
