Question 1966 Edelbrock carb install

Hey guys,

Rebuilt 289 v8 and c4 transmission in my 66 coupe. I bought an Edelbrock #1403 electric choke carb which I just mounted on the engine.

So now I'm hooking up the throttle and I have some questions.

1. Can I use the stock throttle rod from the pedal linkage? If so, do I need anything special to hook it up?

2. What kind of return spring do I need? I'm guessing the little stock one on the throttle rod isn't enough?

3. Which hole does the throttle rod get attached to on the carb? Theres one big hole at the top of the throttle on the carb and a smaller hole below it (see pic). Which do I hook up to?

Thanks guys!!

yea, the stock linkage should be fine. if it will fit in the smaller hole, use it. and get 2 springs! nothing worse than a throttle spring comming off!
