Carb Control Coil

I am working on a 56 Servi-Car with a springer front end. Yesterday I connected the spark and throttle controls and have a few questions. I have a right hand shift so the spark control is on the right side of the handlebars.

On the carb I have a Linkert M18 with the P/N 27267-49 throttle arm on it. When I turn the handle grip completely open I get about 180 degrees movement on the grip and about 1 1/2 inches of cable movement at the carb. This only allows the throttle to open half way. I have the 1954? controls that don't have the big screw in the end. These are repo controls so I don't know how original controls operate.

The spark control will pull the cable but when I try and turn it the other way the distributor does not move back. The control wire seems to wind up inside somewhere. I can move the distributor by hand both ways. Is it possible that the distributor is clamped down too hard.

Sometimes the cheaper repop control coils stretch when you are trying to open the throttle. Jerry

Also, do you have the right cable? It should be solid core rather than braided.

A good hardware store will stock piano wire in the correct size, if your in a pinch, bring along the casing to fit wire, not too tight not too sloppy.
