I have two questions about the throttle linkage on my 65 chevelle. First does anybody know where I can get new bushing for the throttle linkage mine has alot of slop in it? Second I have a small block in my car with a victor jr. intake manifold, because of the taller intake I have very little peddal to play with. I have tried to adjust the rod & this just messes everything up, any solutions?

You can buy a conversion kit from Summit to change to a cable from the linkage rod. I think this is the way I'm going to go on my 64. I haven't been able to find the correct rod to use with a 4 bbl and aluminum manifold.

Hoffa, I have the identical problem. There are bushings avail , I've seen them on a friends cherry 66. I can't find them. I'm probably going the same route as 64 elky. My next mani is real funky in fit. I was going to use a cable from a mid-70's Chevy.

Phil, are you referring to the high dollar Lokar setup or a modest cost Summitt setup. If so can you reference a page or part#? The Lokar set is too "billet looking" for my stocker.

I was going to go with the low dollar more stock looking set up. I don't have my catalog here at work so I'll get the #'s when I get home. I am working on a 68 Camaro right now and the interesting thing is the way the cable mounts on it. I think it was the first year. The old pivot bracket hole is still there but it is covered with a plate and the cable is just fed thru the firewall from the outside and secured with a sheet metal screw. It is my sisters car so I can remove the pieces and do a trial fit. Seems real simple and it would be parts that have easier availability. I'll let you know more as I figure it out. I like using GM set ups and only do after market as a last resort.

I picked the rubber carb linkage bushings from Hinshaw's. The plastic ones which go in the firewall lever are available too, I know there is a picture in the Year One catalog. --- Carl

Hey Hoffa,
If your talking about the rubber gromment that sits on the carb arm and attaches to the linkage arm, you can replace it with a really neat busing made by TD. It's part # 2341.mgg

Hoffa, muscle factorys number is 1-800-762-0317 or 714-635-2314 the accelerator rod grommet is a wopping $2.95.Buy the way did you convert from a two barrel carb?if so there is a longer accelerator rod you can buy for this set up its made for stock 4 bbl motors ,if not I would think the threaded rod would work fine. later POPS
