Throttle Linkage Problem

Discussion in '1965 - 1973 Classic Mustangs -General/Talk-' started by rich777, May 26, 2014.

  1. I have a 73 351 Cleveland that I put an Edelbrock Performer intake on. Put an Edelbrock Performer 1406 carb on the intake. I have the Edelbrock 1483 throttle lever kit on the carb. The throttle cable and kick down rod are binding. I found another Edelbrock part that says it's for a 351M, nothing so far for a 351C. Help! I'm sure this question has been asked before, I'm new here and could use some direction. Thanks.
  2. you might try installing a spacer between the carb and intake. depending on how bad the bind is, a 1/2" spacer should do the trick.
  3. you may have to bend the rods to get good alignment
  4. I messed up on the post, will try again.
