    Tom,
    It was more an exercise in desperation than anything else.

    I couldn't find the correct shaft, so I used what I could get and had in stock.
    Schebler throttle shaft, Linkert lift cam, correct NOS thumb lever, long detent spring etc.
    And to make things worse, I only had a Linkert lift arm at the time, so I had to reprofile the lift cam.

    It all works, but it wouldn't get any points in judging.

    I live in hope that I will find the correct choke shaft one day.

    Getting the peen on the cam right is something, Mick,...

    That I don't want to draw the judges' attention.

    (doh.)

    Getting the flat on the shaft in the correct orientation was the hardest part, not going for originality, the peen was just hit it with a hammer over and over again.

    I don't have that liberty, Mick!

    Schebler must have pressed it before the rest of the shaft was machined.

    Or it would have crushed.

    I just put the shaft in some soft jaws and took it gently.
    Used a small ball peen hammer, taped the cam on and peened over the shaft.
    I filed the shaft OD and flat down by hand.

    Once again, I needed to get my 29 running, so anything goes. I wouldn't sell one of these to anyone, just for myself. It looks good on the outside.

    Don't tell anybody, Mick,..

    But after roll-peening, I often silver-solder, just to "nickel" the cam.

    Then I lathe dress the 'upset', with a little center pip.

    I can spot mine in a heartbeat; Still aughta charge more.

    If you are supplying these as a service, that is the type of thing you need to do.

    I have a DLX66 that needs some work. How is your work load?
    Cheers

    I will stab myself in the eye first, then figure out how to get some machining done.
    Cheers

    I should have thought of that.
