    Hi mate

    If you are good at tig welding and have good jig to clamp it down to keep it straight then the kit is fine oh and hours of freetime as Well cos all those welds have to be perfect. Roofchopper powder coats it as Well recommended. The optional ball race bearings and skid pan are too expensive for what they are. But the rail is a Well designed and engineerd work of art

    Well worth it

    Default A bit of help needed

    Well lads I need a bit of help on three problems please ?

    !. I am fitting a Team twisted linkage system, do I need to change screw on the new 1107 carb, I can get it out easily enough but a beadlock screw does not fit seems a different thread.

    2. i have fitted the Dom V2 and there is a blue hose and jubilee clip also in the kit, I guess that is a seal but there doesn't seem enough room. I have some heat resistant sealant from my work what do you guys do.

    3. When I turn the front steering arms left and right If I go too far then everything locks up. I have the Hitec 5765 servo with servo adapter fitted on the pull start side, I have seen on the internet that the adaptor should be fitted on the clutch side to centralise the servo. Is this true.

    I know it's a lot of questions but I am trying to get this sandrail finished.

    Thanks for your timefoto 1.JPGfoto 2.jpgfoto 3.JPGfoto 4.jpg

    just put the blue hose for the v2 as tight to the manifold spring retainer as you can, the hose is tight to get on so sits fairly tight on the manifold and spreads over the pipe itself, i don't use the hose clip just the hose,
    imo the hose clip looks cack if it's on there ,
    the pipe may still leak a tad but not as much as if it would if the blue hose was not on there

    Default Throttle linkage

    Just found another problem the Team twisted throttle linkage is too short by about 3 inches f**k. I guess this is because it's a LWB sandrail anyone got any ideas best way to increase the lenght or other mod

    Cheers

    There is a thread on here about v2 coupling somewhere, I think it was coalminer who got a reducer hose off ebay and it fits both header and pipe then cable tied

    not sure about the servo adapter,
    but if you mean when you turn steering by hand with nothing turned on? then mine do this as well ,
    i always thought this was just normal (two cars, both do it) ,
    just push it back with your finger or switch it on, as long as your end points are set right when switched on it should be ok,

    i think it's caused by the horn and link being almost straight

    make new rods out of bycycle spokes, as long as you can get em the right diameter ,
    i have the team twisted linkage on my twin and have also noticed that the rods bend very very easily, must be made of some very soft material

    Bloody good idea that bicycle spokes never would have thought of that one. I live in Holland bikes everywhere, I'm sure someone won't miss one.

    Cheers mate!!

    if you get one the right diameter, the threaded end of the spoke will thread straight into the carb link

    different diameter on each end? if so that's exactly what's needed

    he also says that the roofchopper sandrail alone go for 550 lbs,bit to steep for me,that's almost a grand Canadian for just the chassis alone,does that price sound right? thought I remember hearing that a couple of lads from the US and got them for appr $400.OO-$450.00 US,under $600.00 Cad after exchange,somewhere around there but could be wrong

    I see your using the Fullkill throttle linkage set, which I think is better than the Team twisted one that I have. I have extended the wire with bike spokes, that went well, just can't get it to line up straight from the horn to the carb and brake arm because the team twisted linkage is on top of each other and a lot of bend not really confident that it will work properly.

    Here you go..Lifting the servo would solve the problem I think, what do you use to do that and do I have to shorten the brass connection to the carb as well. Cheers Paul thanks for your help.

    sorry mate can't work out why the photos come out sideways.
