Trying to figure out the accelerator linkage set-up on my son's '68, 200 auto. What concerns me is the pivot rod which runs transverse along the firewall. There is no bracket/bushing on the right side. Only on the left near the pedal. Is this correct?
I have a '68 shop manual but my garage is packed with cars for the winter and I'm not even sure that I can open the cabinet door to get to the manual. If I can, I will see if I can get a clear picture of the linkage diagram.
On my '66, there's brackets holding it on both sides. The bracket on the passenger side is held on by 2 bolts side by side. I don't have any clear pictures with me but I can take one tonight if you need a reference.
1966 Mustang Convertible. 200 I6 / C4 with a Weber 38/38 2v carb, COMP Cams 260H, Duraspark II ignition, and headers to dual 2 1/4" pipes with Dynomax mufflers.
Dude, I don't see any holes but it appears that the firewall was coated with some sort of undercoat. It may be hiding them.
They must be hidden then. Why is there undercoating on the firewall? That's more of a rhetorical question, like, why did the previous owner of my Falcon paint the engine compartment with trunk spatter paint? I don't think those brackets are made to come off without having to pry them off, so it's strange that it isn't even there.
Dude, thanks for the shop manual info. The brackets are there. I simply didn't see them. I'll have to look elsewhere, maybe the pedal. I thought this carb would have a dashpot (it has a stalling problem) but it doesn't. I'll do some more reading and look at the info online for the 1100 carb. Thanks everyone for the input.
