Weber 32/36 linkage won't fit
trying to install a weber 32/36 kit (k491) on my 1980 Jeep Cj7 (151-engine) i discovered that the linkage causes some problems and is not just a bolt-on as promised. Maybe you guys with expierence on converting webers can help me out.
As you can see on the attached pictures the small rod between the bellcrank on the manifold an the throttle lever is too long an positioned either to far away or to close to both of the ball-type connections on the lever. So if connected the whole assembly doesen't move freely and tends to fall apart again.
What are my options? I tried to get a shorter rod between bellcrank and throttle lever, but it was not available here. Anyway. in this case the lever would still be either to far away or to close to both of the ball type connections.
Convert to a universal linkage? I'm not sure there is enough clearance between the valve cover and the carb for that.
Thanks in advance
