Any advice please. I have changed to right hand drive and had problems with
the conversion; the throttle spring being too small for the throttle shaft and
have had to emery paper the shaft so there is not too much resistance on the
return action.

Now on fitting the new type poly bushes to the old throttle cross shaft it has
again gripped this shaft too tightly when bolted up underneath the gearbox
aperture (the bushes were loose on the shaft until the brackets were
tightened). Has anyone else had this problem? It will turn but I guess is far
too tight for the return springs on throttle and carbs. How slack should it
be? Its the last job before the engine goes in, except for filling and
bleeding the hydraulics and perhaps dropping a battery in to double check the
