I’m looking for the original factory linkage from the gas pedal to the carburetor for my 1957 3100 with a 1964 327 V8. If it also has the throttle linkage, that would be great.
Thank you,
Larry

Hy LAJones48, Jim Carter Classic Truck Parts lists their part number HP142 as the kit which contains most of what you are looking for, hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply. I have one of the repro linkages. I’m trying to locate an original to either use or to help me see what’s different about the repros.

The 327 wasn't available until '62. If V8 equipped, your '57 could have only had a 283. SBC V8's for those years are mostly the same, but the carburetor and intake may be different.

The re-po,s don't fit as they come. They have to be disassembled & assembled correctly. I assume it is to save space when shipping.

Hi George. I’ve heard about the reassembling issue, but I haven’t been able to figure out what needs changing. I bent the tabs that hold the bracket to the firewall, but the the linkage was not moving freely afterwards. Do you have any info on what needs to be rearranged?
Thank you,
Larry

Its been so long since i did one I can't remember. I know its pretty hard getting it installed with the engine in there. I don
t have any of that model any more. Maybe another Bolter can take a photo of it.

As George stated they are not assembled correctly and the mounting is designed for a flat firewall but TF trucks are curved.
If you are converting from a 6 to a V-8, it may be a problem as some firewalls are drilled for the bracket and some are not.
It's difficult to drill holes in the correct location with the engine in place.
The aftermarket ones can be made to work with some modifications. I have not been able to find any originals on the conversions I have done.
