Rv14A throttle
Just wondering if anyone has had a stiff throttle movement the first 1/2 inch or so. I have the avstar fuel servo and Vans stock throttle cable. The stiffness is not in the cable as it was smooth before hooking up the throttle arm, thanks Dennis

Never noticed anything on mine. Do you feel it if you just move the arm by hand?

14 throttle
Hi Ron, removed the throttle cable and throttle arm moves free. Do you have the offset throttle arm or did you change it out to straight arm? Not sure if the offset arm would cause friction somehow. I know Tim Olsen changed his out to a straight arm. Thanks Dennis

I'm quite sure I used the arm Tim used but I have a poor memory. I have the cowl off because I'm doing the nose gear SB so I will have a look.

Look for binding in the heim at idle position.

Throttle stiffness
Hi guys, have ordered the straight throttle arm from avstar and will see if that helps. lr172 what is heim . Iím assuming itís the mixture arm connected to the throttle arm. Thanks for the replyís, Dennis

Heim is the ball joint, make sure it can swivel around and doesn't bind.

Throttle arm
Just a update on the avstar throttle arm. Installed the straight arm I received from Avstar and it made a big difference. Movement is now smooth Thur out the travel on the throttle. Thanks Tim O for the part number and advice

I'm having the same issue. Dennis, do you mind posting the part number you spoke of?

Throttle arm
Part # is AV2522004. You can order on Avstars web site.youíll also need a different bolt as you donít need the spacer any more. I tkink itís a An3-10 that fits.
