So I'm nearing the end of the build. The car came with the stock pedal parts but that's it. No rod or cable from peddle to carb. I believe a rod was used from the factory but could be wrong. 65' SS. What do ya'll use? Thanks

I would try to convert to cable if possible.

Cables came about for safety reasons as I have heard.
The engine mounts could break and when they did and you rocked the engine off the mounts as it torqued sideways.
The solid rod would sometimes bind up in that circumstance and you get a stuck full open throttle.

I have used solid mounts or clamshell mounts that keep the engine from moving too much if they fail and I have used
Both solid and cable throttle.
If I was using the mounts that allow the engine to torque away from the mount when they tear in two I would want a cable throttle.

I do not use those mounts though . Many old cars have them and I think those are horrible engine mounts.

Agreed. I have seen drag race cars hit the wall for one reason or another, then the throttle gets stuck open and then can't stop.

I went with lokar expensive but works very good. Summit cable(reboxed lokar) and a csr bracket.
