Does this look wrong? The throttle rod looks like it’s at too much of an angle. The arm is a V8 conversion throttle arm. Im running an Air Gap intake, but I don’t think that should really matter. Thanks for the help

The Air Gap manifold is higher than the stock manifold but if it works smoothly it should be fine.

Be careful it doesn't overcam the linkage or it will stick the linkage at wide open.

Where is your return spring?
It should be a straight back pull of the linkage instead of down hill.

I haven’t installed the springs yet or the TV bracket. I’m still trying to figure out this rod issue before continuing. Sticking of the throttle is my main concern

It’ll be fine. I ran the same stock linkage on my car with a super victor jr intake. I’ve since changed to a smith race craft accelerator pedal setup.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I am going to experiment and get some longer rod and bend it in an L shape.

I want to go cable eventually but I don’t have the money for a Smiths Racecraft right now. Hey, I don’t even have the money for a Lokar:D

Try all thread with Heim joints (Rod Ends) from hardware store...
Cut to size.
I do recall also using a Camaro throttle arm that is a bit taller with that high rise set up.
