TV rod help!!

Okay... Im building a 1962 Cadillac Coupe DeVille and Im having trouble with the TV rod. When I bought the car the TV rod wasnt hooked up. The linkage was just laying on the manifold. So the problem is that there are no holes on the bottom side of the butterfly for the linkage. There is only one hole and that is being used for the throttle pedal. There are a bunch of holes on the top side of the butterfly But the TV rod needs to go on the bottom side of the butterfly to pull when full throttle.

I thought the butterfly bracket with the holes is upside down and tried to take it apart but it doenst come apart. I was trying to flip it. That didnt work.

I have the book for it and it shows both the TV rod and throttle pedal rod is both at the bottom side to pull when full throttle. Other then that the rest of the carb works great.

How should I hook up the TV rod??

It appears someone has switched carbs on your engine. That isn't the correct linkage. That's probably why you found it disconnected. As you guessed, here is what your linkage s hould look like. Took this photo form Chilton's. The picture truly for the '63, logo covers that info.

Also, here is a note on setting up your carb return spring. The way you have it the throttle shaft bore on the carb will be wearing out prematurely.
