You could probably easilly swap in a cable system from a 70s or 80s GM.....quite similar to the original 56 setup. I used the original on my 55...........trouble was, it kept locking at full throttle........lots of fun when that happens.

When we swapped out the L6 in the '67, there was a linkage problem using the original rod linkage. The major problem was getting the carb to fully open. I had to fabricate a metal bellcrank of sorts and attach it to the carb linkage. It was hidden by the air cleaner. After that I scavenged every linkage rod I could find from junkyards and swap meets. They come in handy. Seems like every time you change carbs it opens up a whole new world of engineering opportunities.
