Weber K550 conversion throttle help

I have replaced the stock 1bbl carb on my 232 with the Weber 32/36 dgev, I have it all connected except I cannot figure out how to get the throttle connected up properly. I have manual 3sp t-150 trans so it doesn’t look like the linkage kit would do the job. Does anyone have good pictures or instruction of how to properly run the throttle cable??

This thread should help, even though some of the Photobucket pics no longer work.

I believe you have a cable coming towards the carburetor.
The outer sheathing will attach to the cable bracket that is mounted to the studs holding the carburetor.
The inner cable would go through the trunion and would be tightened by the one trunion nut.
The trunion would rotate in the throttle lever, being held by washers and a cotter pin.
Makes sense to me.

Do you have a cable, or rod linkage?

Edit: Do you have a steel barrel swedged on the end of your cable?

If you have a barrel at the end of your cable, you could cut it off and slide the cable through the trunion.
OR
You could get this type of throttle lever that would allow you to utilize the barrel at the end of the cable.

Keith and Matt,
FYI
He has the 1 barrel Carter to a two barrel Weber kit K550.
The pictures you are providing are for the rod linkage K551, not the cable linkage.
Great pictures.

Any photos? MY Weber 38s on my 258s ended up with the throttle bracket facing sideways on the engine front side of the carb. This required the cable to come across the middle of the engine from the spark plug side, outer sheath fastened on to the bracket and inner wire pushed through the trunnion and fastened down. This suits my RHD. However the carb can be rotated half a turn.

Here are photos when I trial fitted it on Bagusjeep. I have since tidied the fuel system. The last photo is s delivered. I had to change the bracket for the triangular one in the first photo.

Bagus,
Great illustration of the cable set-up. I have used this cable bracket that might be a better fit for your set-up. Take a look.

I got it figured out, thank you everyone for your tips and photos. It ended up that the throttle lever/trunnion was installed upside down making it so I had to push away from the driver’s fender instead of towards the fender. Flipped that around, adjusted the speedo cable to the right length and I have a working throttle.

Yes, interesting. Do you have a source / part number?

Looks good redpig.

If you fill out your profile you will get more accurate answers, unlikely they will ever be useful again though.

Yes, 444.551-04, REDLINE makes these. Maybe your guys in Australia because of "duty's"?
I would send you one, PM me your address. Again, there may be duty's when it arrives.

Ha! Australian prices generally outstrip the cost of item, delivery, taxes and duties...that is if you can even source a part

When ever I hear the word 'Jeep' I reach for my wallet.

Unless they are re-shipping to a country with a free trade agreement like Malaysia, then they can undercut direct shipping from USA. JUST!!
