Have you checked linear displacement of the cable end at the actuator with it rotating on the secondary axis?
Yeah, I probably will end up using a shoulder bolt with a nylock nut.

I haven't checked it physically, but as I mentioned it has about a 45 degree sweep and I calculated the range of travel that the actuator will give me to be 0.75" to 1.5" of travel. Playing with the bike throttles, it looks like they only need about 1" to 1.25" of cable travel. So I think it should work.

Perfect. Okay neat. I can't wait to see this finished.

Just out of curiosity, how tight are your stock TB linkages? mine rocks around alot, to the point where the one piece will grind on the lower piece it tilts a bit. It is pretty annoying.

Tight. You must be missing one of the bushings or something if it can rock around that much. I'll take a look at it on Sunday if I swing by berlin klassik.

You must have taken it apart to rotate the shaft 180 degrees so you can put on the variable TPS.

I didnt rotate the shaft, i run the TPS backwards.

Should maybe have done so. Putting the connector on would be easier.

I took a few minutes yesterday to tack together the main part of the throttle assembly so I could test fit it on the motor with injectors, fuel rail and injector harness. Everything appears to be clear...

looks pretty sweet.

bolt/nylock always come loose applications like that. I like your original idea.

What I end up using all depends on what costs money and what I can get for free lol

Bolt with castle nut and cotter pin or aviation lock wire will stay put.

Looks like a nice mod. If I understand this correctly you are building this up as a track car but I'm curious what going to the 6 barrel set up is going to do to your fuel economy.
IK it's not typically a concern but the less time you spend pitting for fuel is more time racing.
fwiw I think those separate chrome filters would look sweet.

You can still open them up in a new tab... or just browse the album http://s575.photobucket.com/user/Ste...?sort=3&page=1

I was actually staring at the ITBs in the garage last night for a few minutes until the cold demotivated me from doing any work lol.
