Haha jeeze you guys, I thought I was bad. Matt I can get a picture but this linkage can't be bent to lengthen it. I already looked into that, there is a linkage that goes from the choke bar over the carb and to the choke piece. that was a little bent so I straightened it but it didn't get it to close enough. Since the linkage from the thermo spring is from my 2bbl it isnt really the correct one. I will get it all figured out though.

I had thought about converting to a manual choke, I know I could buy the cable but I don't know if that would be cheaper than using an electric one. I also will have to find a hole in the firewall cause I don't have a drill bit that can go that big I don't think. Would I just buy the cable and bolt it to the choke lever then run it through the firewall and find a place on the dash to mount it?

Sounds like a personal problem? LOL just kidding.

If it's the linkage that goes from the choke assembly to the bar that is connected to the choke then Carter 4 AFB Parts Page go down until you see the AFB choke and fast idle linkage set, seems pretty cheap. I'd look around online some more, I already tried looking around some but am having a hard time doing so. Before I discovered my actual choke linkage and carb installation parts under my seat I made a linkage out of a coat hanger, it was very crude but worked good LOL

You know, i thought about that before hand. Thats why i said linkage instead of rod

Thanks for the link i wil skim it over and see if i can find anything, i never thought about using a coat hanger. I was going to use a big paperclip and form it to what i need. I have a lot of extra metal hangers which could do the trick just fine.

Wow so i just looked over that pars list page you posted matt and it has everything i have been looking for. Shoot. Unfortunately i can't afford What i need just yet, maybe i could get my mom to buy them as an xmas present or something.

Hahaha, I looked at the shipping on that site, pretty expensive. I wonder if Oreilly's sells the choke linkage under the Edelbrock name in the Auburn store, seems like I've seen it there before. The coat hanger linkage I made in 5 minutes, I could have made a better one but it worked for a few days before I looked under my seat and found the bag of parts with some bodies

Haha, I wrote down the part numbers for each and i figured i would try oreilly's and Napa to see if they had might have them. The oreilly's is pretty good about knowing their carb parts but i won't know till i go up there and ask. It's easier to drive up there and make sure rather than call them so there isn't any mistakes.

EDIT: also i could end up using the coathanger but i would probably take a little more time to make some sort of fastener thing. I don't think i could make the groove for a C clip like the current one.

Yeah, man when I bought carburetor studs at Autozone I asked the guy if they had them and he looked at me like a deer in the headlights and didn't know what they really were. He eventually found them though. Great service eh?
