Carb throttle linkage for a Holley 8007 1460 on an Offenhauser intake

Dugger sent me a note, wanting to know how I made a linkage work for my setup so as promised, some pictures.

This is a very quick and dirty way to mount the a throttle linkage for a holley 8007/ 1460 390cfm to an Offenhauser intake on the 258.

The long and short of it is I used a Mr.Gasket throttle cable and bracket kit and then chopped it up.



After a little tinkering which the geometry I decided to mount the bracket to the carb fuel bowl bolt. This required rotating the cable stay mounting area 90 and then bracing it with some triangulation and some seam welding. It's not pretty but it does seem to work okay for now until I can build a proper pulley and guide way system.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.
