    I did it on my 64 riv. But I used a shoe box holley. Should be easier on the ebrock. Basicly what I did was to fab a piece to attach to the primeary arm from a piece of black iron pipe and flat washers. Then I attached it in proper relation to the kick down sw. to kick it when the throttle is snapped open. Works great. If I can figure out how I will post some pics later.

    Does anybody have a pic of an Edelbrock setup with Dynaflow kickdown linkage? My Rochester is crap and I'm sick of rebuilding it. Thanks!

    Smile Re: edelbrock carb linkage

    I have a 65 GS with the 401 and put an Edelbrock 1407 750 CFM Carb on it and had to get a Micro Switch from Edelbrock and wired it into the kickdown on my St 300. I had posted the info on this forum a few years ago, maybe you could do a search and find out what was said. I think I may have posted some pics but not sure. This new computer is not letting me use the Kodak Easy Share we have installed for some odd reason or I could find my pics for you. If you can't find my old posts, you may want to call Edelbrock as I did and they can advise you how to wire the Micro switch into your kickdown. I hope this helps you, good luck,

    I put a momentary switch neatly into the center console. I push the button and my kick down operates. Then all they see is the "R" on the tail lights

    I used an edelbrock linkage adapter to try to get my 600 or 650 CFM edelbrock to work on my 59 401 with a dynaflow. I never could get it lined up right...and then it quit running. I wish I had the part number. With some more tweaking I could have made it work. I just told the guy at the local speed shop my problem and he had an adapter which was a piece of metal with holes in it. I'll see if It's still on my carb and I'll post a picture.

    hi i got the 401 with a dynaflow and also changed to a 750 edelbrock with the help of my mechanic. He did this linkage, the only thing i can say is that the kickdown now is very soon, means when i hit the pedal only 30%. However the engine now runs way better than before. Unfortunately i donīt have pics, and you will have to wait for them as i will see my car on christmas again.

    It can be done. All it is is all thread rod hookin up to the linkage on the carb. If I remember correctly (it's been over 2 years) the rod from the tranny was too short. That may explain why your kickdown is "sooner" than before.

    When I put the 750cfm Edelbrock carb on my stock '64 Wildcat with a ST400, I used one of these: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku. If memory serves me correctly it didn't bolt up to the trans pan very nicely...which didn't make sense to me because I was under the impression the ST400 pan and the TH400 pan were identical. Regardless, it works like a champ!
