|64r1||Thank you all for all your help!! I had a donor carb which is an auto so I'm going to attempt to just swap shafts because it has the linkage I need. Any precautions? Thanks again.|

|cobalt327||In some cases (on later model carbs), the baseplates can be swapped out- but you have to watch out for a few things, mainly that the gaskets are identical and that the idle air bypass orifices are similar. The bypass sizes aren't a big deal, they can be resized as needed.|

|artsvettes||The later style quadrajets that were behind 700r transmissions are a good source. I swapped out the shaft of a 87 monte 2004r carb in my 77. It is a pain but it was less taxing on the brain.|

|64r1||Thanks for some help I am actually away from the vehicle and cannot take a pick of my linkage so when I get back ill take a pic and post it it to thread. Those pictures on that site are good but the one picture shows the tv cable hooked to a hole in carb exactly opposite of the return spring hole. If I remember correctly I don't have that same provision for the cable just the return spring hole.|

|64r1||It's an automatic but it does not have the geometry plate for the tv cable|

Is your quadrajet a manual or automatic tranny carb?
Auto tranny one has the bracket already on it.

Quadrajet geometry correcting plate for 700r4?
Ok I am sorry if I am beating a dead horse. I am having issues with my cable setup. I am running a 454 w 700r4 and the carb is a quadrajet my issue is the stupid geometry plate that attaches to the carb. I know they make aftermarket ones for holley, edelbrock, carter but yet to have seen one for a quad. Can someone help me please, I am so close to being able to drive the car in and out of the garage so i can start doing bodywork. Any input would be great! If someone knows how to fab one Ill pay to have one made lol. I know how important the tv cable is so I know not to drive it until all this is taken care of.
