That’s the third design of that casting I’ve seen! No wonder they lost moneySRD29 May 2012 at 17:33 #49272
Am I surprised, no, but quality build – yes!Christian29 May 2012 at 22:21 #49282
My choke control is a slider just like the heater vent control. on the lower part of the dash facia.SRD30 May 2012 at 07:24 #49283
Can you please post a picture of your choke control.
I hadn’t realized until the owner of 117 mentioned it, there was so much variety in tjhe position of the choke control and also style of the unit.Christian2 June 2012 at 18:57 #49314
Cropped from another photo…note, no veneer on the lower section of mine.SRD11 June 2012 at 21:47 #49320
This appears to be if I may use the words, “the normal position” on these cars.
Still can’t work out why they choose to move the choke/mixture adjuster linkage around so much!
Have looked at pictures of 132 and 153 and both have the adjuster in same position.
Did your car ever have veneer on the bottom section of your dash-board, must be one of the few like this ??Christian11 June 2012 at 22:13 #49323
I think (but could be wrong) that the earlier cars were like this on the lower section and later ones were veneered…SRD13 June 2012 at 08:28 #49328
Picture of 132 attached showing same slide system, but with walnut dash:SRD13 June 2012 at 08:30 #49329
Picture of 147 attached showing same slide system, and with walnut dash.
Same on 120, 148 and 155 and I believe also on 129
Would be nice to know what the feature is on cars before say 120 ?
I am curious to know what other variantx, David had noted for the choke/mixture adjuster and where they are located ??
