Looking for help with linkage setup for twin solex 40PHH setup on 1800 twin cam.
If anyone can put any photos up of their setup.
If anyone has a linkage setup willing to sell.
If anyone can point me towards any suppliers that have a range of linkages they have used to do this setup.
Am in Adelaide.

Don't use linkages. Always too much play in them and forever adjusting. There's not enough room for linkages on them anyway.
And never have one carb operate another. They will bend throttle shafts if set up that way.
Use a Weber style centre adjuster so each carb operates separately. Easy, neat, and works the best.

And if possible use a - cable - from the "Weber centre adjuster" to the accelerator pedal - overcomes 90% of linkage slop ,is lighter , lots neater and takes up a lot less room.

Forgot that bit. Cheers KB.
Gemini cable works well on them.

With thanks to Google. I'm nowhere near mine ATM.
3 of mine use this. Easy to set up and doesn't ruin the carbs over time.
EBay has them. Look up "Weber throttle levers".

And do not forget to "soft mount" the carbies - they are meant to be able to be moved (like they were left a little bit loose ) Many a carby has been ruined by people installing the soft mounts and then tightening the nuts until the carby "ears" are bent - not an easy thing to repair.
