can anyone send me a picture of how the throttle rod attaches to the carb, on a 396 with a holley( my car is a 69)?
i bought the throttle rod for a 396 and also bought a solid bushing that fits into the 1/2 opening on the throttle linkage on a holley carb, but still can't seem to get things to work. i have now tried to put the rod into the smaller opening on the linkage, but things don't seem to work out. the holley i'm using is a factory dz 302 carb,
R-4053. is there a difference with this throttle linkage vs. the one for a big block carb?
any help would be appreciated.

Good timing, KZ and I just did this on Saturday! We swapped a DZ carb off my 350 onto his 396. I'm not sure what throttle rod he has on there, but it was attached to a Holley 600 before. When we took the DZ carb off my car, we took the solid bushing out and used in on my new carb. We then hooked up his throttle rod on the 396 to one of the smaller holes on the throttle bracket next to the 1/2" hole. First we tried the small hole just below the 1/2" hole, but it was too far away and you couldn't let out the throttle all the way. So we switched the rod to the small hole next to the 1/2" hole towards the back of the engine and it worked just fine. KZ can probably take a picture of it if you need one. Hope that helps!

thanks for the info. I think the hole just under the 1/2 hole will work for me. if not, i'll try the other one.
thanks again,

I ended up having to bend my rod slightly, so that it would not interfere with the power booster tube.
