    Anyone have a good pic of the factory throttle linkage or cable from the pedal (engine bay side) to the carb? My truck had a 20R swapped in at some point but throttle was never hooked up

    Thank you for that. I think i have most of the parts for it. But im half tempted to do away with the linkage and just run a cable setup new pedal assembly and all

    My stock one worked perfect for me.. I'd try and hunt for a stock setup instead of ditching it.

    I think i might have to just set it up right. Cuz the linkage was just mounted (poorly) to the firewall

    should be 2 bolts holding the 'pivot' which the rod hooks up to on the firewall.

    How did this work out? The carbs and the header on what looks to be a well used 20R? I am thinking about doing something similar.

    How difficult was it to setup something like that?

    Wasnt too bad. Lokar universal throttle cable, weber throttle cable kit, and i fabbed a custom gas pedal using the factory firewall mount. Was pretty straight up just took some tweaking to get it right.

    Any photos? Sounds like a great upgrade.
