    I have no idea how to post a picture but I have a 70 GTX 440 six pack with a sliding linkage on the throttle side that I can't seem to find anywhere or get any information on it has a overhead Rod that connects the front and rear carb and at the rear carb it has a sliding linkage that connects to the center carb

    Bob,thanks for your time I agree but I believe it's it's a aftermarket setup it looks like my idle solenoid arm on my Center carburetor was broken off. To Clear the bottom rod I can't believe somebody made this in their garage for but if they did my hat's off to him? I have no clue how it's supposed to work because the bottom arm doesn't seem to do anything. I am going to call Promax on Monday seems like they know everything about six packs and make replacement metering blocks and throttle base plates that you can adjust the idle because the screws come in at an angle. Promax.com in Indiana

    Oh. Yes, I do remember that deal. The ones with the different size mounting holes. Well I'm glad you got that one resolved, for now until some new ones come along. I think we worked on a running issue also at some point?
    For the outer ones, The Vacuum pods kind of independently from the center. as a veg description....lol

    Mancini and six pack performance also have some... The stuff you need is out there... :)

    Yes I agree that's why I don't understand this the rear to Central carb Slip Sliding arm makes absolutely no sense to me I was trying to see if anybody see one has any information about it I am pretty sure I'm going to replace it with a stock setup it's just a really odd ball set up again thank you for your time

    That's slip arm doesn't open or closed the carbs it's just worthless I thought I tried every possible which way to turn the arms the rods whatever this seems like it's the only possible way it could ever work but it makes absolutely no sense to me
