Bog/hesitation during acceleration in Buick Riviera Posted August 15, 2019 After work today I connected the stator rod to the carburetor linkage. Then took it for a drive through the neighborhood. The freeway was bumper to bumper with traffic so I couldn’t take it on the highway. First thing I noticed was it gave me a harder pedal. I had to put all my strength into it. I’m sure it is in desperate need of some lubrication. From a stop the pedal feels normal until I push into it. But other then that it drove great! It actually drives better then it has ever been. I got up to about 30mph and stepped on it till probably around 55-60mph. It didn’t have a kick down feel to it when I stepped on it like I expected it to. It had more of a smooth increase of. speed I checked my linkage with what the book said. And Everything looks in accordance. My linkage looks to be further apart then the stock version. Her are some pics of the linkage close up both wide open and closed.
