Linkage

I have a 72 CJ5 with a 258 IL6 and a Weber 38/38 synchronized carb, with the linkage positioned at the back (firewall) side. I’m wanting to improve the linkage from the accelerator pedal. It currently has the 31” cable in the plastic housing that loops wide to the left. I’ve seen pictures Using Weber’s Jeep Linkage Kit and a hint of an adjustable linkage rod which drops down to some hidden mystery (bell crank on the firewall maybe?) at the left of the carb. I interested in this mystery zone between the pedal and the Weber linkage kit. Any ideas or referrals would be appreciated. Thankyou. Will.

The mystery rod is the kick down for an automatic transmission.

Some pics here of when I had the Weber 32/36 on a 258 with linkage.

Thankyou keith460. That gives me some idea of what additional linkage I need to find. It appears you still have the shrouded cable from the pedal, which explains a lot about my current set up.

P.S. keith460, how did the 32/36 Progressive Weber do with your 258? I was considering changing over from the synchronized 38/38, hoping to get smoother acceleration off the clutch. My 38/38 makes it a little jumpy.

Too small for the engine. It worked fine but was trial & error to adjust and get the right jetting so it would idle decent. It didn't have the getup and go like a Weber 38 or Carter BBD does. That is why I switched back to the Carter BBD. Found a NOS 1980 model year that bolted right on and no adjustment necessary. Right out of the box and away we went.

Still have the Weber 32/36 sitting on my self collecting dust on the box its in.
