[E-Type] SU throttle bracket

I’ve recently discovered a problem with my throttle return spring
brackets. For my 4.2 Ser 1, the parts book shows a triangular
bracket for the rear carb and 2 different ‘‘y’’ brackets for the
others. My ‘‘y’’ brackets are virtually identical and the middle one
has been wearing into the frame member. Is there a major difference
between the proper brackets or would just bending my middle bracket
to obtain some clearance be proper?
TIA

Joe,
The rear one is indeed a different triangular piece, the other two are
the same piece except bent in different directions. The middle one
goes outside the frame and the front one goes inside. I bought a new
one several years ago and received one that was not bent. So
basically its a bend to fit application.

As a side thought tired motor mounts could cause the bracket (engine)
to be in a position it should not normally be in so you might want to
at least consider taking a look at those.

Thanks, Paul
I noticed the problem when I replaced the motor mounts. Bending the
bracket is what I’ll do. Strange, tho, that they have different
part numbers if they come unbent.

While my SU’s are fitted to a Series II:

I actually have three different brackets.
One triangular and two different '‘Y’'s .
Each is, so positioned as to fall directly below the spring
attachment lever and still clear obstructions…

Joe,
I bet if you got an OEM one they’d be pre bent :slight_smile: This supplier, my
supplier of choice Terry’s, obviously figured out they were the same
and could stock one part. As long as it wasn’t bent yet.
