I have a 1964 nova ss. I currently have a throttle rod connecting carb to linkage off of the firewall. When I press the gas pedal it doesn't open the carb up. No matter how I adjust it the carb will not open all the way.. This is an original v8 car currently has a 327. Any suggestions or throttle linkage kits??
I know on my 3rd gen I put a rod and linkage on it instead of the cable. The shorter the rod the more the the throttle arm from the car can lay forward. The more the arm goes forward the higher up off of the floor the pedal will be and should give you full throttle. Hope that made sense. I have a rod with heim joints and I can adjust mine. Actually my rod(from carb to pedal arm) is a little shorter than what I want and it raises my gas pedal up a little higher, works fine though.
Thanks for all the tips. I ended up taking the pedal out and I did some SERIOUS bending. Its work!! I've been wanting to post pics of my nova for a while. Im going to try and post pics tomorrow. Thank you all for the hewlp. No question unanswered on this forum.
