Thanks for putting it all together in one post. I suspected that the later transmission didn't have the need for the switch on the carburator. One question - on fuel injected cars you indicate that the switch is part of the linkage shaft of the intake venturi - would I be correct in assuming that this is not something I can adapt from a fuel injected car and use on a weber carb car? Sounds like the answer is "no". An earlier reply suggested that on FI cars the switch was part of accelerator linkage, which might be the same (I don't know - not something I look at often.)
I'm quite surprised that Redline / Weber is unaware of the need for this switch and does nothing to provide for it in their rather expensive carb conversion setup.
thanks again for the reply.
