    ok, so far this is the only thing that I haven't been able to remember / figure out... I got the linkage connected for the throttle for the throttle body, but I am unable to remember / figure out how the linkage for the cable that goes to the tranny connects up...

    I got a chiltons sitting here, but I can't figure out where to find a diagram for it. any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not for sure so if you don't mind waiting until tomorrow morning sometime I can look on mine. What exactly are you wanting to know, I'm a little unclear with the question. How it hooks to the tranny its self?

    I am assuming this linkage should be the same, or similiar... I'm going to go up in the morning to the parts shops to see if they have any detailed pictures.

    check out the following pictures (Turbo City recommended the 454 TBI instead of the 350, and I regret going to the 454 more everyday)

    you will notice in the firist piciture that there is a bottum linkage on the TBI that does not exist on the 454 TBI so I am going to have to have that fabricated.

    Jeff, I can't be of much help other than to say that if the arc that the throttle cable is pulled, as well as the distance from carb stud to bracket, is not correct, you can potentially fry the 700 quick. Just a word of caution to make sure everything is the way it should be before driving it (not it will work for now and I will fix it right later type of deal). Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I think there is a sight on the net that gives the distances and correct arc for creating a custom linkage. I will try to look for it and let you know if I find it.

    the linkage on my 400 looks exactly like that on the 454, you might, it came straight from that doner Camero, you might ook at a local junk yard...... I'm not so sure this is going to help you but I tried...sorry

    actually the 350 TBI is from Insane Ewok which has a standard, and the 454 TBI is from Jedi Mind Trick...

    I think what I am going to do is swap those linkage pieces between the 2 TBI's... that way I can't really go wrong, and that will also solve my problem. I will have to grind that oblong rivet out, and then I'll tap the TBI and put a small bolt there to hold the linkage on...

    I missed what it was your trying to do. Are you trying to fab a new mounting linkage for your throttle and TV cable? Or are you asking about mounting and adjusting your TV cable? If you are trying to fab a new one I can help, I had to fab mine, let me know

    Displacement, cubes, and did you say you drive a riceburner???
