I wish I knew how to attach a picture it would make it so easy to show you ,I use 2-56 hardware ,ball-links and threaded rod ,Sullivan push rods(SUL505,SUL505) and a standard servo . if the carburetor throttle arm is to short you will need to extend it if you look around you could use metal landing gear straps like(dub159) or make your own i use two straps in a triangle shape and bolt it on the throttle 2-56 bolts and nuts,from the fire wall make a stand off 1/8 ply with a bell crank(db161) . run a linkage from the engine to the bell crank using ball links and rod .from the bell crank to the servo i use ball links or 2-56 nylon clevis and use the Sullivan push rods(SUL505,SUL503). IT will take some fussing around but make sure there is very little slop . I try to avoid metal to metal contact so you don't have radio interference ,with 2.4 radios it no as big a problem as it use to be with interference noise from the engine but really try not to have any metal to metal contact
Adding images is really easy, just keep them small in size - say under 1MB. That's easy for a web jpeg picture. When you click on "attachments" the button will give you an option to choose a file off of your hard drive or other image source. Click in the file and you're done. If you're not sure the file is attached, click on "Preview" to see what your message will look like.
I just downloaded a app called BeFunky for free Went to settings on top right.That gear thing. Then resolution and click 1mp 1280x960 then back to photo editor click on the middle thing that looks like a mountain your pictures will come up pick you’re picture and save back to camera roll it automatically resizes then click add attachment on forum then add file Pick your picture from photo library. I will now do a test
Don that's a very easy set up just run you push rod to the leaver arm with a bull link if you cant get enough leverage screw a landing gear strap to the carburetor and attach the ball link to it.in the first picture it shows a push rod straight to the carburetor in the other picture is with a 90 bell crank the other method i said was the to make a standoff glued to the firewall with the bellcrank attached to it
Been playing finally got pictures done the first pic is a Homlite 25cc that's in my Monocoupe 110,the second is a Zenoah G26 that is in my PT19 ,the throttle linkage in my Junkers CL-1 is the wood standoff no pictures of that but wanted to mentioned that options too all have worked extremely well for years
Admin: I am looking for an eighty inch Cub, made by Sig. I saw one at the swap meet in London, but got distracted and it got away from me. I heard someone stole it for a paltry sum of $175.00.

agn: The most useful tools I make are sanding bars. I use white pine wood of many sizes, if you have an old saw blade, cut them after gluing sand paper of different grades to the wood.Long ones short ones thin ones etc.

agn: I also used paint mixing sticks and broken propellers for compound curve sanding.You can use any glue but some need to be weighted to keep the sandpaper to the surface while curing/ drying.

agn: Also If you have a tube light , 8' is nice you can parallel the light with your work , a wing leading edge, sand and rotate it to check how the shape is working out. Longer blocks work well for this starting with course grain to finer grain sand paper.
