Bill Stoneberg Posted March 19, 2015 Share Posted March 19, 2015 I have finally finished rebuilding the engine and putting it back in my 64 Riviera after a valve broke and went round and round trashing pistons etc.My question is on the throttle linkage, it seems like I have a large amount of "slack" in the linkage, almost like I am missing a spring someplace.Same carb, didn't touch that it this process. It came off, sat on a shelf and went back on. Removed the linkage from the throttle shaft and it sat up against the firewall till it was time to hook it back up. One thing I did notice is that while advancing the trottle it pushes on the accelerator pump and opens the throttle plates but there is no ressistance at all.Like I said, it acts like I am missing a spring but I dont see one in pictures or in the parts. Any ideas as it is undriveable like it is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
