Re: wierd rod...

If its the correct carburetor for the truck, there will be a place on the linkage for the rod to connect to. Slide it on and find a clip to hold it in place.

When this snow clears out, I will go out and take a pic of the linkage on my 84 and post it for you.

Here's how it's connected on a 1980 F150 302. It should be similar.[IMG][/IMG]

Re: wierd rod...

It's probably not stock, that's why there is no hookup. Holley does make a linkage kit with several different studs that you could probably make work, or just drop it down into second gear if you need a little extra get up and go. Just don't over rev the engine.

Re: wierd rod...

On a stock V8, I'm guessing somewhere around 4500.
