Choke cable install ??

Can anyone give me some hints,procedures, pitfalls to watch out for when I go to install a new choke cable on my 92 - 440 Indy sport with dual Mikunis.

I am especially concerned with the procedure at the carb and any setup if necessary

Thanks John

Changing out the cable is not hard, especially if you are going all new. When you pull the choke plungers out of the carb, there is a ball on the end of the cable that fits in a socket and is held in the socket by spring pressure. It is a good idea to do any changing over the bench, so when you drop the spring or the plunger, you don't have to hunt for about a week under the dang engine to find it. (speaking from experience here... )

After you get the plungers changed to the new cable, and get it re-installed, you will need to adjust the cable so that the plunger bottoms on both carbs. You do that by checking the freeplay at the choke lever. You should have about 1/8 of an inch "slop" in the lever. Measure from the lever to the nut holding it. With a little freeplay, you are ensuring that the plungers are bottoming and the choke (enrichment circuit) will be operating correctly.

Am I correct in reading your response that I can unscrew the nuts that hole the cable assembly to the carbs and then remove the unit as a whole to my bench inside where it is warm and then do the cable exchange?

Also, thanks for the set up info.

John

Many thanks for the info. The change was easy and I gave everything a shot of carb cleaner while I was at it. Only thing though was that I purchased a whole cable assmbly as thetoggle leaver had broken off just to find out when I took the original off thta the toggle end is a separate assembly and can be purchased by itself. Well live and learn - experience is great. Now I will know for the next time.

Cheers John

Yup, live and learn. I've done the exact same thing.
