1928/29 throttle cross shaft
#1
Good afternoon all. Is the throttle cross shaft on a 1928/29 car straight or bent rather like a hump backed bridge?

On a '32 RN its straight. But that may not help you !

The ones on my cars, of that period, are straight behind the block Stuart.

Many thanks for the prompt replies but it begs the question to what model were the cranked ones fitted?

Nippy - they have a sort of bulge...probably a couple of owners after one too if you have a spare!

Stuart - another difference between the '29 cross shaft as opposed to say a Ruby one - the two mounting blocks are round on the vintage shafts, whereas the later ones are square with only their outer ends chamfered off.  If you have a lathe or a file with a lot of patience you can easily convert the  later one to look kosher.  As I don't have either in front of me I'll check tomorrow that there's not a slight difference at the final end at-or-after the right-angle bend.  If you care to send me an email on ausevenoz@gmail.com  I can forward direct a sketch of what yours should look like, with measurements.  Good Luck,  Cheers,   Bill in Oz

Good day Bill. Thanks for the info, I had wondered about the round vs square mountings. I have sent a separate email.

Best regards Stuart.
