We have a local bearing manufacturer that carries all sorts of stuff like that including the rod ends. You might check to see if you have something like that in your area. You can also order them thru Jegs or Summitt racing...

You might also try http://www.lokar.com/throttlec_kick.html as they have some pretty cool stuff...

I went to a local boat supply shop. They had some small enough ones that I used to make my linkage. A couple bucks apiece.

I also did my own clutch linkage with spherical rod ends from Mc Master. It really improves the pedal feel. Now I'm thinking about doing the same to the Hurst shifter linkage, have any of you done this before? I wish I had a spare set of shifter linkage rods to start this, but I'm afraid to spoil the ones actually in the car.

Chopper,

On the McMaster website listed above you can find many different types of rod ends.

I too made my own. On the firewall arm I used a standard spherical rod end. On the carb side a quick change removable type was used. On the carb linkage a ball stud is bolted on, and on the throttle rod the end has a sliding sleeve with a return spring. It can be R&R'd in seconds.
