I replaced my Carter YF single-barrel carburetor with a new-to-me Carter of the same model, thinking it would bolt right up and work as the previous one was intended to. My old Carb had HORRIBLE leaks because many of the screw holes had been stripped of all threads, preventing the screws from actually doing anything to hold it together. Needless to say, it runs like a champ with no leaks due to the replacement. Unfortunately, some difference in this one from the other one causes the throttle to sit lower than the throttle on the previous carb. The small amount that it's lowered prevents the gas pedal from working. The angle that the cable pulls simply pulls against the carb itself, instead of turning the throttle. If my throttle bracket was about two inches higher, it wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, it isn't. I fabricated a small piece of metal that held my throttle cable a few inches higher and did the job perfectly until I tried to put my air cleaner back on. Didn't fit. I'm new to working on cars, as I'm 16 (almost 17) and this is my first car. I simply need it to get me from point a to point b so I can have a job and therefore have money to fix it up properly. Anyone know a way of adjusting where the throttle sits? I'm not sure if the way I explained it makes any sense, but I'll be happy to clarify something if asked.
