1952 Farmall Cub meets 2017 Technology, how do you remove throttle nut?

Postby ShawnAgne » Mon Apr 17, 2017 8:18 pm

Well I wanted a tach/hour meter but didn't want to spend big bucks for an original. I didn't want to buy a Chineese repro that would break, and I figured everyone would appreciate me not messing with my engine adding the tach drive parts and the half dozen posts that would ensue because I messed something up. So here was the solution.

It is an induction tach, bonus is it will give me actual running hours. Just had a plastic circle made to fit in the holder and clamped it in. Soon as I get the bracket painted I will give it a go.

However question, how do you remove the nut on the throttle. I removed the trottle unit but when I spin the nut the stem twists. Guessing it is stuck to the nut but thought I'd ask before I mess something up.

Hi,
Looks like a nice meter.
If you removed the throttle lever or spring, try using some pliers to hold the shaft, the nut should screw off. You might need vise grip pliers on the shaft.
You could cut off the excess clamp length, sticking out in the pic, when you get it all assembled, and smooth up where you cut the clamp. :)
