Pro Tips - Savage OFNA Linkage Mod
This is a must on savage to:
- Gain proper throttle opening
- More consistent and adjustable brakes
You will need a linkage kit and a spare set of sliders, as well as a longer screw.
Find the adapter that fits on the servo and install it then cut all the servo tabs but one (make sure the screw can spin freely in the hole) and assemble the sliders like so:
You can bend the rod so it fits in the bell crank for install the ball (I like doing the ball because it can be snapped on and off for clearance when working on the truck.) like so:
Install the rod and curve it to clear the roll bar:
Slide the rods through the sliders (brake on the bottom throttle on the top) and install a rod stopper on the top with a piece of fuel line (to absorb shock) and then the slider followed by another stopper.
Pull the trigger and adjust the rear rod stopper until the carb opens all the way:
Then let the throttle go and make sure it closes all the way (if not adjust the front rod stopper):
Then try the brakes and make sure the engage then adjust your break knob (if needed)
*****very Important that the front spring on the throttle linkage has just a little pressure on the slider ad idle*****
