1951 Pontiac Chieftain Carters 2 barrel Carb Throttle rod


Recommended Posts

Looking for the throttle control rod for a carters 2 barrel carburetor.

Mine works but has excessive play and would like to replace with one in better shape.

I get about 1/4 in of movement on the rod before the throttle engages.

I had to make one,like the one in your second photo.I found two ends that would fit and then welded in a rod of the same diameter to the proper length. I ground it down,filed and sanded it until it was to my liking,then painted it. You have to look real close to see that it has been altered.

 

It was easy to do since you have a good bit of adjustment on one end.
