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
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.
does anyone have a wrigt up or info how to set my 65 chevelle up for my holley ..65 didnt have a cable for the carb it was just a rod.. the one i have on the fire wall is way to low for the big block,,, i have a holley 850 any info or how to or pics what you did will help. i could cut...
