On a tangent – is anyone using the Gene Berg fan housing mounted linkage? I realize that if you are not running a doghouse then this might not be an option. Once installed and adjusted both throttle bodies open and close smoothly with minimal load on the throttle shafts. It does have a few advantages over the hex shaft setup IMO.

There is this to think about as well. Looks much easier to sync at high RPM, trying to tighten the jamb nuts without changing the sync is a real PITA.

Sync Link had a lot of hubbub a while back and then kind of quietened down, probably due to price. It's a very nice system and I think Raby uses it a lot.
