    CARB HELP

    Just got a dragster and the throttle cable is a little short to around engine to bracket. Has anyone ever ran carb backwards ?

    It's done every raceday by some. Have run mine both ways on the same car. Change to shorter cable was the reason for me.

    I don't think you can run a power valve like that and you would have to move the jet extensions to the primary side.

    Cable

    Morse Cables come in 6" incraments,can be purchased from ANY Chassis Shop,Speed Shop,ETC...............!Why F K with something over a 40.00 Cable,of course a Dragster Cable would be Longer and Cost maybe 65.00?
    How Long of a Cable do you NEED?
    I have a 12 or 13'Cable I was going to Use for my Chute Cable.
    LMK?
