The previous mechanic ripped out the system, cut, welded and threw away what was left, the bedford runs well, until a steep incline...So I

You could try Chris Morter, he does have spares from vehicles which he and dad John have broken. I couldn't get the linkage when I put the correct carb on my QL, had to make one. Bear in mind the QL is very,  very slow on hills even with the correct set-up - doesn't seem to matter whether they're loaded or not!

Have you got Chris Morters email or phone number, As I'm in Normandy France not UK..The problem with our QL it cuts out on steep inclines due to the Zenith carb being half the size of the Solex...Thanks for the help...

Chris Morter 07860 520542 or 01953 602581. If you are really stuck, it's possible to make a sort of V shaped crank by welding two steel strips together so that the point of the V pivots on the small shaft on the side of the carb, and use a universal throttle linkage (I got mine from ebay cheaply) to connect it to the rest of the linkage. Probably easier to do than to explain. If you need further explanation, let me know and I will try and get up to where I store my QL and take a picture or two of what I cobbled together - it works very well and doesn't look too out of place apart from my awful welding!

Regards,

Mike

Thanks for the help Mike, I  met Chris on 5th June when he visited the DDay Acadamy in ROTS..

Seems he will be able to locate most  of the parts I need for the vehicles

This is my Solex to be fitted  with no linkages/control rods

The others are the Zenith fitted..

Glad to hear that Chris has been able to sort out most of what you needed, and that I'm not the only person who's pretty useless at welding!!!
