Edelbrock on ford problems

I recently placed a edelbrock 1406 on my '84 bronco but it needs a special throttle linkage to fit fords (im currently getting pretty sick of buying one new part and finding out that i need another new part to make it fit and then another new part to make that one fit) could anyone tell me everything i would need? just the lever adapter? or is there anything else?

HAHAHAHAHA, best thing you can do is buy yourself a bone-stock vehicle and never touch it. Let someone else work on it, because you have no idea of the time and effort it takes to make hot rod parts work properly.

If you want to buy just one part with no additional mods, buy a stock rebuilt carb. The aftermarket carbs are "universal fit", which means that they fit a Chevy 350 from the 1970s and 80s. At least you can get the parts to adapt it to a Ford. Try working on an off brand like Olds or Buick.

ANYTIME you change something from stock, expect to have to make mods or adapt it somehow. That's life.

Even the Edelbrock advertising tells you that you need a separate kick down lever. Now, since we are on the subject, you also need one of their tuning kits plus understand the Owner's Manual supplied with each new 1406 for optimum operation.

You want a lesson on hot rod parts bolting together - take a look at the car on my header and guess the YEARS not hours piecing it together from 'universal' parts
