What CB Performance linkage??

Post by shawn63deluxe » Tue Sep 12, 2006 7:22 am

Hi there, can anybody give me an idea of the cb performance linkage kits they have used with the DTM kit? I have a 3135 kit which is for idf's ( I have 44's) with porsche style cooling. The upright fixed arm on the right hand side baseplate fouls the shroud by a long way and would need to be placed a good inch or so towards the decklid if that makes sense. Guessing the 3132, 3133 & 3134 are close but which one?
Thanks!

Is the engine Type 1 or Type 4?

The spacers needed to relocate the linkage come with every DTM kit. The instructional video offers step by step instruction on how these are correctly installed with CB linkage.

Hope this pic helps, as you can see my kit has the upright about an inch too far back

The video was indeed a great aid over the manual Jake :D
I fear I have completely the wrong cb kit to start with :?

As it's a porsche style kit I'm thinking the upright in question should sit behind the porsche style shrouds and in effect be on the wrong side. Am I barking completely up the wrong tree :?: :?: :lol:

O.K. Guys , some one has already done this out there, help the man. The question was which kit is it 3132, 3133 or 3134 or something else? Not that what he has won't work... we know that, The suspense is killing me :D

I've got spare base plates for Shawn that will work.

I'll take pictures of them!

If you use a porsche shroud, the most obvious to use is a bell crank push-pull system.
This can be made cheaper than most hex bar systems with fancy cast mounting plates..
Ahnendorp makes a very nice and simple system for about 75 euro IIRC (sorry Jake :wink: )

Cheers Wally but as Paul says above we managed to use old cb performance baseplates with bits of my new kit to get the hex bar in the right place :wink:
