Viva GT throttle cable
A couple of hours fiddling around this afternoon with a spanner in the engine bay and me inside the car with another spanner saw the throttle cable bracket finally fitted. It was no easy task trying to find ways to hold the spanner in the engine bay in place. Many utterances of rude words, some wire ties (to hold the spanners in place) and it was done.
The cable was then fitted to the throttle bodies and threaded into the passenger compartment to connect to the pedal, using a ferrule and bolt. I think I can get full throttle, but It’s difficult to see when one pushes the pedal and tries as hard as one can to make myself 10 foot tall to see into the engine bay.
The engine bay is now filling up, not the way I ever wanted it, but its better to have the car done and running. I need an air box, the original Lotus item is too bulky and big to fit now, so I am looking at the various Jenvey air boxes with a view to a cold air feed from low down at the front.
The rest of this weekend will be investigating the route for the three hydraulic lines, the best option so far is to run them out the old fuse box position (no longer using this), as long as I can run them internally tight against the pedal box I will miss the throttle cable.
