Triumph TR6 - Throttle mixture control cables
|Same car, different question. 71 TR6. The car doctor, when I dropped in unexpectedly, told me the carbs had two cables and only needed one. One was connected, one wasn't. I think they are the throttle mixture control cables that would go to the choke control. Do both need to be connected?|
|If your Carbs are original Zenith Strombergs 2 cables are needed. There are ways to modify to a single cable but leaving one disconnected isn't it?|
|From this and the trunk post, sounds like the "car doctor" might just be practicing without a license. It looks like time for you to either find someone who specializes in British stuff or go the DIY route.|
The remark about only needing one and then the bit with the trunk are not good signs. Have these guys ever even seen a TR6 before? Even the most basic of shop books, such as the big multi-manufacturer Chilton ones, indicates that the choke cable set up on the stock carb equiped NA market TR6 is a double cable.
