"Bonanza" Carb/Choke Bracket

Howdy everyone,

After lurking on here a while, I've noticed there is a tendency for first-time posts to be centered around needing "something" such as advice, info, pics, etc. I wanted to do things differently and actually provide a CONTRIBUTION as a part of my first post rather than a REQUEST.

It's great to be a member on here and I hope to continue to learn as time goes on.

In addition to the Team Rush Upgrade, I also installed a 2150 carb which have me the opportunity to put my spin on the factory throttle cable question for a straight-pull-back design. What I came up with,
I informally named after the highly popular Bonanza Aircraft with the unique V-Tail. In this case, the bracket supports both the factory throttle cable and my manual choke cable.

The entire bracket was made out of 1/4" mild steel and was TIG welded. I had to grind the throttle-side "finger" down to a thickness that would allow the plastic square (not sure of the proper name) of the cable pass through and hold.

Ultimately, in the end, I hope this helps or inspires at least one other person.



Please feel free to critique.

Very simplistic yet very functional design. My compliments. I am also tickled at how you labeled the carb components with sharpie.

Thankyou Sir...You know, I was gonna wipe off the marker with some carb cleaner on a rag before taking the pictures but I decided to be honest and show everyone just how much of a "newbie" I really am to all of this.

I like the knickname for that.

Now you will need to design one for those with automatics that need a kickdown cable..
