Ill get two honda GX160 carburetors, and build adapter intake manifolds. Honda / clone parts are cheaper and available everywhere.

How complicated does a throttle linkage have to be??
Imagine having to do this on two engines and then operate them at the same time🙄

Don't worry, the governor linkage on my flathead is way complicated, and that's just one engine!
