71 carb was set up to run off of a cable, so I'm inclined to think that maybe you don't have a 71 carb. :frown:

The late 69 thru early 73 carbs utilize a pie-shaped bellcrank that the trunnion [end] of the cable fits into and runs along. The cable housing is threaded at the carburetor end and supported by an anchor bracket that hold the cable at a diagonal.

If you have a carb that has a diamond shaped bellcrank with a ball stud on it, it is best to determine first what year the carburetor is EXACTLY. Then you can decide whether it would be a better bet for you to try and swap in a bellcrank that will work with the cable, or get a transition-type bellcrank that will actuate the ball stud with a cable.

This question has been covered before.

help me out here please, maybe its just not that inyeresting of a thread??????
If you're referring to me, I am not on the computer on a regular basis. I have a full time business, a family, and a lot of hobbies, and WAY TOO MUCH Email to track all the threads I post to. That's what's cool about the bbs, you can get imput from the whole community if they're interested in your situation, whether or not they know anything about it!

If you have the rod linkage, you should try it out. Some people prefer it because it doesn't stick the same way a fraying cable will. On the other hand, it does get sloppy if you don't renew the two bushings [one poly, one rubber] on a regular basis.

If you do a thread search, I am sure you can find a pic of the linkage setup, which is prolly why more people aren't posting to your thread.

Bretty, scroll down to the second pic, that is what you are looking for. You need the second piece under the 10mm nut toward the bottom of the carb AND the plate thet comes off the right side of the carb(in the picture) that appears to have the idle fuel solenoid wire laying on it. The second part is what holds the sheath.

I thought I said that, too? Uh, that would be 65SWB45. Call him great prices and service and.....he has them.
