    Re throttle pedal ratio to carb movement, this is from one of watson's video's what he did was cut about 1" out of the top part of the pedal below where the cable goes into and the cut and weld it into the lower part of the pedal below the bit that bolts to the bulkhead thus changing the pivot ratio. then weld a piece of flat bar below where it should bolt up drill 2 new holes in the flat bat an 1" lower than the original ones and this will move the top of the pedal back up inline where the cable comes through the bulkhead. Simples !
    You can see in this photo the new mounting bracket that raises the pedal back up inline with the hole where the cable comes through.

    Just watched the video. Another classic episode if I may say so.

    Must feel good to get it turning over, actually running in next one hopefully.

    I have a concern regarding running fuel pipes through sheet steel, without using rubber grommets. It's only a matter of time before one cuts the pipe with untold consequences.

    Keep at it my friend, soon be done...

    You need to move where the cable is attached to the pedal down a bit and then you’ll have more pedal to throttle movement.
