I would really appreciate it if someone with an XK-140 OTS (left hand drive) could provide me with the measurement for both the vertical and horizontal throttle linkage arms/rods. (I acquired my project with nearly everything on the firewall disassembled.) I don’t have access to my car body now as it is in the paint shop, so I cannot measure these areas. It would save me much time if I could narrow the choices of linkage arms. I realize there is some ability for minor adjustment. I have a number of linkage rods to chose from and I am attempting to get the two critical pieces prepared for when the body is returned. Can anybody help me? (…measure ball/socket to opposite end ball/socket) Thanks so much - in advance…
It just so happens that I have a LHD XK140SE OTS, which I have access to. The length of the horizontal link is 15 3/4" ball-to-ball and 16 1/2" overall. The vertical link measures 12 1/2" ball-to-ball and 13 3/8" overall. This is as accurate as I can get it without disassembling the linkages, but should narrow down your choices a bit.
Thank you so much, that is awesome - exactly what I need. I have a variety of links among my 14 boxes
of parts and spares. I now see that I do have two links that are within 1/4" and 3/4" of the measurements you provided. I think that is well within the adjustment provided at the anchor points.
(other measurements are certainly appreciated as it may help with adjustment)
Thank you again, very much appreciated.
