I have a Rod that is used for my throttle linkage but I also have to be able to hook up my Detent/Kickdown switch for my torque converter. Buick Made these transmission for two years they are called Switch Pitch transmission, That is how I can get 455 lbs of torque by hooking up this pull rod on my linkage
Thanks for the reply

MI2600 Is your accelerator linkage rod or cable? I have a 1407 on my 406, with cable linkage. All I had to do was buy the Edelbrock stud that fit the cable. If you have a rod linkage, they sell a bushing with a hole in it that fits the carb.
You should be able to find those things at just about any speed shop.

I Have a 66 Switch Pitch Trans 400. Why do you think that the carb is not the right one? I have to admitt that I am no expert on carberation at all, I spoke to the tech People at Edelbrock and they said it would work.........I had thought that the 600cfm would be the best but then I was told that this carb would work .Plus I got the carb at a good price "FREE" So Maybe this is not the best one?
What do you think is the best way to go?
Thanks for your reply and help

Anyway, what kind of trans do you have?
