According to the Bentley manual the length of the vertical control rod
should be 3.18 in. or 80.8mm. This is for Strombergs, but it should at least
be a good reference point for the SU's.

Subject: [6pack] SU Throttle Linkage Setup
So in this morning's drive I was left without a working throttle while going
down a hill. It turns out the vertical threaded rod connecting from the
throttle linkage at the bottom of the carbs to the upper throttle shafts
somehow loosened and came apart.
I circled the part that I'm talking about in this picture:
I got it back together and drove home but now I need to adjust it back the
way it was. Is there some ideal length of that rod? Should there be any
play in that ball/screw socket where the threaded rod meets the upper
throttle shafts? I know I've adjusted this before but I can't find the
measurements, and now that I think of it they may have been for the ZS's.
Also, these are SU HS6's I'm referring to here.
