I've had some issues routing the morse cable for my throttle without too many bends in it and came to he conclusion I needed to have the cable attach on the right side of the carb (looking from behind engine). I run a 1050 jetted square, and have swapped around the bowls and jet extensions to the rear bowl, which is now the primaries. The cable is now routed with one single bend in it, works much smoother, so I'm just looking for the opinions on running the carb like this.

The altered has a front mounted pump and cell and I run 7.5psi at the carb, I don't see it being an issue but anybody got any thought on it ?

Without a PV in the primary side, it makes no difference at all. Remember, ppl have run thsese things sideways for a long time so backward won't be an issue.

Guys have been running carburetors backwards on dragsters for decades. Just make sure you have your jet extensions and floats pointing in the right direction and you'll be good to go.

yep all in the right place, swapped jets extensions and bowls. Makes sense to run it backwards in a single seater as the cable's better routed on the right regardless of whether it's front or rear engine.
