Does anyone know who makes the Holley NH replacement parts? I would like to have a throttle lever made up for right hand drive.

Thanks TOM

Didn't Mr. Jelf recently come into a rather large pile of carbs and parts? Don't know if he has any RHD stuff in with it though..

Before I saw the question, it never even occurred to me that carbs for RHD would be different. But most of what I got is bodies, not many throttle levers of any description in the pile. If Don Lang can't help, try Russ Potter.

Tom, it would be nice to be able to buy RHD carb controls. However, it's not hard to alter a LHD throttle control to suit. Cut the arm off your LHD control first and file the control back to a neat finish. The cut off piece needs to be welded back with the linkage hole, the centre of the shaft, and the open end of the idle adjust loop all in the same line. This will mean changing the angle of your cut end so it buts up to the control arm neatly. A dab hand with a MIG welder will do the trick. Grind your weld to suit.

This is easier than taking off the arm and changing the locating flats in the arm/shaft and then soldering the arm back on.

Been there, done that.

Hope this helps.

Allan from down under.
