        You're welcome... Sorry it's a little late for you...

        I've seen a couple of threads concerning this in the last week and found my pictures and took new ones for what I didn't have to cover the whole thing from throttle bracket adapting to kick down linkage. Now when it come up again, we can post a link to this thread as needed...

        This will complement 6pk2goDemon thread on converting a 2 bbl to a 4 bbl... We need to find the link to that and post it here.


        2-Barrel to 4-Barrel Conversion

        Thanks for the link TMM.

        Here's another thread on a 2 bbl to 4 bbl conversion worth reading:

              This is really great, thanks! I now see what I need to do to correct the setup on my '67 Barracuda and I am also planning a 2 barrel to 4 barrel swap on my '78 Street Van/318.
              Do you have a source for that throttle stud? I need at least one of those.

                Here's the Holley version, but I like the stock one better... The end that the throttle cable goes to looks different...

                Find any stock Mopar OEM carb in a junk yard and nab them...

                    Karl...awesome writeup!!! This thread needs to be a sticky! You know all this info also applies to installing an Edelbrock 4bbl carb in place of a 2bbl too!

                      Great write up thanks! Does the kickdown to throttle ratio adapter still aplly for a cable setup like Lokar?

                      Yes...that adapter also corrects the throttle cable/pedal mismatch of the Holley/Edelbrock generic throttle lever.

                        I am wondering if your methods will work on my 1964 Dart slant 6 225 with 904 pushbutton automatic. I want to run a holley 390.

                        Yes, they should work with a Holley on a slant if the carb has the same type of brackets...

                        I keep seeing posts that require me to change my accelerator pedal to a 64-66 A body V-8 pedal assembly or a slant 6 pedal assembly with AC. My car is a non AC car. I did see that Lokar has a universal accelerator pedal and a specific pedal to 67 and newer Dodge Darts.

                        You may need to use the accelerator pedal with the cable and not the one with the solid bar/rod linkage to work...
