    ok.......so im going back to the stock 2bbl carb on my 67, the PO had put some crappy 1 bbl on it. its set up with throttle cable instead of the original linkage. i was wondering if its possible to hook up the same throttle cable to the rebuilt jim c carb. i have the actual linkage in a box, but was wondering how hard it would be to format the throttle cable instead of the actual proper linkage which has been removed :beer:

    67 had a one barrel from the factory.... ;)


    Making a cable linkage would not be that difficult. Modify your peddal for a cable, route it to the carb, and you are good to go...


    What engine are you running....stock 67-F?

    What intake manifold are you using?

    The piece of linkage on the carb is different than a rod linkage for the attachment of the cable. I have the part that the cable attaches to, which I will give you, but I am lacking the part that the cable sheath bolts to.
    PM me if you need the part and I will send it out.
