Is there a preferred number for the correct exact length of the accelerator rod, on the 1967/8 model cars? I see the adjustments that can be made on the firewall end, but what is it supposed to be? I mean, from the center of the carb stud, to the center of the accelerator linkage, that the gas pedal operates...

This changes with engine manifold and carb. The transmission is also a variable sine the automatics have the shift cable attached at the bottom end. I would just set things up so they all worked properly.

I guess I'll just have to dial some more when I get back...I've fabbed my own linkages, with heim joints on both ends, I just want to be sure I'm in the ball park with the factory numbers...
