    Throttle Linkage ?

    Engine: 496 BBC
    Carb: "Quik Fuel" 950 cfm Holley
    -
    My present gas pedal to carb linkage is just a hollow rod.
    Both ends are female taps.
    I have small clevis ends threaded into each end.
    Also a pretty cheap throttle return bracket with 2 springs.
    I have seen a multiltude of throttle linksage brackets from various
    companies in the Summit / Jegs catalogs.
    Some can get pretty pricey.
    I have no plans on using a throttle stop.
    I run IHRA "NO BOX" class
    Can anyone suggest one that they are happy with?

    The Jegs bracket with the return springs are very nice.Alot like the CSR peice.For $60 it can't be beat.

    What's wrong with running solid linkage? As long as you have solid motor mounts, I would stick with what you have.

    Solid linkage with a toe hook.Only way to go IMHO

    I run a bracket I hot from Holcomb Motorsports. It has the double rerturn spring attached to it and is in a polished aluminum finish. It is a very nice piece and I payed $110 for the bracket and a cable.

    It doesn't matter what you run for linkage, just make sure you have a toe hook to bring the throttle cable/rod back to "0" it's the quickest respond to a stuck throttle on the top end.
