    Hey guys, I read in a thread here that some of you have made a four barrel Holley carb work with the stock early model rod linkage and pedal, by turning the carb 90 degrees.

    Does anyone have photos of their rod linkage hooked up to the carb? What brackets/linkage are required? I have a '64 Valiant and I'd like to retain my original pedal, linkage and kickdown.

    Thanks!

    Offy makes (or did make) a linkage kit that hooked up to the rod linkage to operate a 4 barrel carb.

    Not the same but this might give you an idea. This is how a Hyper Pak uses the rod type system on a 4 barrel.

      Thank you, I understand the setup now. Offenhauser doesn't list the linkage in the catalog anymore so it may be discontinued.

      I didn't want to go this route, but a V8 pedal and lokar cable may be in my future.
