    Anyone know where to find the sub-atomic sized cotter pins used in the carb linkage ends? Seem like I can only find pins locally down to 1/16" inch and the linkage uses ones way smaller than that.

    I had one but I gave it away to someone here. It came with my carb rebuild kit and I did not use it. I would call up Pierce Manifolds, Gilroy, CA, but I doubt they would sell you just the cotter pin (it is so small it had to be taped to a piece of paper in the mail).

    What is wrong with just using a small wire?

    If you can't locate the cotter pins, safety wire works really well.

    i just replaced my ball/cotter pin set up with new linkage, i could probably find the wire if you really need it, but i would just use as suggested above (although some will complain its not "original" hahaha)
