What is this linkage? Do I need it?

I am working installing a new intake and carb. No clue what this linkage is for or its purpose. Currently there is no attachment for it on new carb. It was attached to post with throttle return springs.

That linkage on the right with the slot? It's for the kick down on your TH350 transmission.

It won’t reach the new carb linkage. Should I install an extension? I assume it is supposed to extend as throttle is applied?

You may need to mod the bracket and buy a stud kit. It extends all the way at full throttle.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

That's not exactly what you need, you need a throttle cable bracket that will move everything closer to the carb and the proper studs on the carb.

wow 36$ for a bracket. This does look like a better option and allows adjustments for both throttle and lockdown. My throttle reached fine but I like the idea of having both cables on one bracket.
