bought this bugpack manifold with holley32/36 weber copy fitted while rebuilding the engine but the linkage puts the throttle cable miles away from the hole in the fan housing
anybody seen one before or got any pics of where to put a new hole for the cable looked on the net but keep coming up with the normal type

Wow  :)

I haven't seen one of those before...

However.... The first thing that hits me.... ::)

Is.... As its a Holley/Weber copy, the carb footprints should be the same, to avoid lots
of faffing with strange linkage mechanisms, have you thought about just getting hold
of a standard Weber 32/36 VW manifold ?

The orientation is perfect and the linkage is easy to set up....

Hello Kriss,

There are a couple of manifold variants about, but if you would like to see a few...

Go here.... Weber Installations

Latest photo of my lightened linkage Peter.

Kriss I have seen Weber IDF's mounted the same way as your Holley and they use a sheathed throttle cable over the top of the fan housing running to a bracket mounted on the air filter bottom plate. If I can find some photo's I will post them on here.

Brilliant Chris

Thats just the job, and as always, getting things right means you wont be faffing about in the future.

I have swiped that photo and will add it to the album.... As when I can I shall use it as a sort of template
on the angles etc.... ;-)up

i think if i move the accelerator tube hole on the front of the fan shroud along about 2 inch and run the tube at an angle maybe put a small flare on the end to stop chaffing it will work

Now I have taken all the weight out of the setup by cutting all the excess metal off the quadrant plate on the Weber and using the Webcon linkage, the pre 1965 spring arrangement works like a dream I have nowalso removed the extra spring that I had fitted.
