How To Repair a Worn Throttle Quadrant

While I'm in a picture taking mood here's another of today's projects.

After the torch welding of the patch is complete it will be ground flush and trimmed to exact width to line up with the original at each end. Then the new notches will be filed in at 1/4" spacing. Usually it's necessary to also repair a worn notch in the lever but in this case the lever seems to be a recent replacement.

Here's a completed one that was done earlier for another tractor.

Saving worn parts from the scrap pile becomes easier with practice.
