  • Throttle Pot Source

    I am looking for a spare throttle pot to take on my summer trip (really hard to replace in the middle of nowhere in the unlikely event it should break). This is a Colvern CP17 part for the Jenvey TBs. I found a few sources in the UK but was wondering who might sell it locally.

    Thanks,

    Gert

    Might be a longshot, but these guys might be able to help:

    Not really "local" to you, but at least in the same state.

    Another source might be http://www.twminduction.com/. They probably will not have them, but they may well be able to direct you to a place that does have them.

    Do rotary potentiometers break that often, or is the Jenvey-supplied one known for crapping out? I don't know much about these things one way or the other, but I am curious because it just seems like the kind of thing that would last for a long time.

      Well, not really..... I was just going over the car with intentional paranoia what might break right between Lander and Arapahoe, WY that I can not get at the local NAPA store or from the blacksmith. That was one of the parts and being small I might get one.

      That said, I had a temporary malfunction of this thing after I accidentally hit it with the pressure washer. After drying and recalibration it was O.K. but who knows.

      Another one would be my reverse spinning water pump (I have that spare on the shelf) but that may be just too bulky to take along.
