CB750F: Day 37: Carb 3 Linkage Rod Out

Carbs 1, 3, and 4 have synchronizing screws. They let you synchronize the throttle plates. That is a “bench synchronization”. When I did so, carb 3 would not stay adjusted correctly. It kept slipping out of alignment.

CB750F: Day 36: Forward Progress

I couldn’t find a throttle plate rod for the carburetor on ebay. I couldn’t even find the part on the microfiche. A kind soul sent me the link for that part though, used, on ebay. The search term is “carb linkage assembly”. Another kind soul explained that some of the carburetors on the ’79 CB750F were recalled and maybe half the bikes got the work done. He went on to explain that the carburetors were very different between ’79 and ’80-’83, and even more, that the carburetors were very different between the supersport and the classic. Great to know; great to know. Those should be here soon. The other option presented was to weld some steel in there and tap out a new thread. That may still happen, we’ll see.

The next project is to rebuild the front suspension.

Here is the Motamec Tools Thread Insert Nut & Stud Rivet Gun Riveting Rivut Blind Riveter that was suggested on Facebook. Very cool.

Help Changing the Throttle Cable on a C10

When observing the bike from the RH side, rotate the center cable mechanism CW so the carbs are at full throttle. This will bring the “pull” cable access “notch” so it faces the rear of the bike, and more accessible from the top. During the time you are rotating the mechanism, pay attention to the individual carb linkages and you will see a gap form between a stop and a section of the linkage. When the carbs are at full throttle, find a suitable flat blade screw driver and wedge it in this gap to hold the carbs open once you’ve released the cable mechanism. This will give you ample time to fiddle with getting the cable end in the hole and engaged. A pair of long, long-nosed needle nose pliers, or a long hemostat works best in getting the cable end in place.
