SUBJECT: Linkage Sticking - Dual 4-Barrel Carburetor Engines

If a compliant is received that the throttle linkage sticks or binds in a car equipped with dual 4-barrel carbuetors, remove the air cleaner and operate the throttle linkkage by hand to determine the point where the sticking originates. If you find that the bolt is sticking where it slides through the front carbuetor trunnion, replace the solid trunnion with a new open trunnion. See the illustration for identifiaction of the new trunnion.

Order group 3.430 - Part 1375060 - Trunnion

Before assembling thenew trunnion, make sure the bolt and the trunnion are clean and dry. Just as carbuetor linkage should never be oiled, throttle linkage, also , should never be oiled. Oil would only become gummy and collect dust and dirt. Lubricate only at point marked with "L" using Lubriplate or a good chassis grease.
