Once i solve these two minor problems, my 68 RS Camaro will be ready to go. I converted this car from a 6 cylinder to a stock 327/210 engine,2 barrel carb. The 6 had a cable from the gas pedal to the carb. The 8 cylinders have a rod that goes through the firewall,then an arm that goes to the carb.All of my Camaro catalogs have this assembly,but only for a 4-barrel carb.Is there a special arm for 2-barrels? The kickdown assembly for the powerglide, which i have hooked up,the slot in the arm lines up with the bushing hole in the carb,but is about 1.5 inches away. If i bend it towards the hole,it binds up. I think this setup is also 4-barrel.Any ideas. I appreciate all the help,you guys are great!

see if you can find parts for a nova, they are quite similar to camaros in many ways. i hope this helps

The 2 bbl arm is a different length - I'll try and see if I have one I can measure for you (late tomorrow) -

It screws down - have you tried screwing it down to fit?

hey jim,
i just swapped my 6 for a 327 as well, but i used an edelbrock carb. anyway, i got the kickdown linkage and i don't know if it was for a 2bbl or 4, but i ended up taking it to a machine shop and had them cut it and weld in about 1 1/2 inches of rod, this got it to the length i needed. my friend has a 327 w/ a 2bbl and i think his accelerator rod is the same as mine, but i haven't measured to be sure. everything's working good on mine. i couldn't believe the simplicity of the accelerator linkage on the V8 compared to the six, gotta love old cars
