6.5 throttle setup and install questions

Ok, please dont kill me for bringing this up. I will be getting my clone tomorrow and putting it in my db30. I want to know what the best throttle linkage method is, because i have seen quite a few. Also, what else should i expect when putting this in the DB? I got the mounting plate so it should be easy. My last question is, how can i disable the low oil switch? do you disconnect the wires, join the two wires together? Thanks for your help.

do a search to find out how to hook up the throttle. there's been quite a few different ways posted.

you'll probably need to add/remove links from the chain. you'll want a chain tool if you're going to do that.

you can just cut the low oil sensor wire where it goes into the case.

I did use the search to find how to hook up the throttle. But im asking everyone what the BEST way is. Most fool proof, already have what i need, wont break. That kind of thing. And why will i have to shorten my chain?

Why do it the hard way when a chain tool is only a buck or two at any sporting goods store?

Don't use a chain breaker, if at all possible. When you push a rivoted pin through the bore, it screws it up. Grind off the rivoted part(s), and push it through. The bore stays nice and smooth.

I dont understand how a chain breaker works. If there isnt a master link, arent all the little rods like, welded to the link? How would a chain breaker push a pin through the link? And since when do you have to remove links? I have ctjmini mounting plate, does that make a difference? I never heard anyone say you have to remove links
