All the finished metal parts for the intake linkage have finally come in. The throttle lever arms got stuck in the storms for a bit, but arrived today. I will take them to the anodizer when I get back from SITM, but had to go ahead and swap out the hardware today for a quick test run.

The lever arms have an integrated wide-open stop and adjustable closure stop. Fox Valley Springs wound custom left hand and right hand springs, with very tight tolerances and full spec sheets and propertied model, just for these levers. They have also been designed so I can use them over both 8mm and 10mm shafts for any future throttle related projects.

The lay shaft holders have Igus T500 bushings pressed in for a lifetime of service, but will hold up to any heat or chemical cleaner that may get used. I am still deciding if I am using the off-the shelf pulley and cable holder, or machining the ones I designed. The idle valve blocks are on order, and supposed to be done the second week of June, along with the rest of the major pieces of the new fuel pump/filtration system.

Here are some progress pictures, and a quick video to show the throttle linkage in motion... its snappy:

It just keeps getting prettier and prettier. True jewelry. All those that are purchasing these kits will have to line their under hood surfaces with black crushed velvet to properly show off the jewelry. LOL. Stunning Hans.

The finished billet idle control blocks are finally here. They are going out for anodizing tomorrow. One of the pillars is an inlet for fresh filtered air to go through the idle control valve (sourced from a Ford Mustang), the other pillar is for the vacuum source for the brake booster. Both come out at 90deg angles past the moving throttle linkage.

The other two lower ports in the inlet itself are used for the other vacuum items and the tank evap.

One more step closer....
