The throttle setup, converted from the electronic standard one to a cable operated setup, touched slightly on the block.
A careful couple of minutes of filing made sure it ran freely. On the outrun to the back of the engine of the cable I mounted two rubber P-clips to guide the cable across.
I think I’ll put some shields on top of the valve covers later on, which can then neatly hide the cable from sight.
As said earlier, I would rather have the electronic throttle valve, but for safety reasons that’s not allowed.
