Has anyone seen my linkage?

Ok, my memory isn't what it use to be. I can't remember where I put my throttle linkage and spring when I tore things down last year. I have searched Mid-fifty, Dennis, Green Sales, etc. No one seems to have the pieces I need. I come to the Forum and ask if anyone has a spare for sale? I know, I know, I should post an ad in the classifieds. (Last time I did that it took 4 weeks to get a response, so be nice). I need this to get the truck back on the road. Thanks. Here are the specs: 1954 223 (6 cyl), manual tranny.

Is there anyway you can circle exactly what you need on your picture? This way I can look to see if I have anything.

I tried to circle what I need. Basically the long ROD with the bend in it and the tension spring. Also the clips at both end of the rod and the threaded part. Already have the pedal linkage and the part that is attached to the manifold. Hope that helps. Thanks!

cj06 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
use to loose those all the time , so we just made them from some rod ! what size 3/16" - 1/4" ? cant remember ! you can weld a small washer on the end of the rod and use a small bolt , or weld a small bolt on the end of the rod at a 90 degree angle , or you can put a sharp bend in the end and then drill a small hole for a cotter pin !

I miss those days when fixing something like that did not cost a arm and leg !

cj06 is right. You can make the rod by using a metal rod available from any hardware store. The clip at the end where it connects to the "Y" on the manifold is available from a good auto parts store. Mine broke when I took the linkage off, but I was able to buy one at the local Carquest auto parts store. The spring can be purchased at the auto parts store or hardware store. You can also thread the other end of the rod and find a suitable nut at a hardware store.

Let me look around to see what I have, though. Since it's a small piece, it'll be like finding a needle in a haystack, with the haystack being boxes and boxes of extra parts.

Thanks. I will try to rig something up with some threaded rod and clips.
