Want to Buy: LM Accelerator Rod and Swivel
Posted by: wv-geo ()

I'm swapping the centermount Holley 4Bbl on my wife's 140HP to individual carbs. Unfortunately, the accelerator rod that goes from the diff pivot to the inside of the engine compartment has been kludged enough that it can't be converted back.

So, I am wanting to purchase the accelerator rod that goes from the differential pivot through the firewall and attaches to the cross shaft, and the swivel that attaches to the end. If you have two of each, even better (doesn't hurt to have a spare).

Let me know how much you want for the items.

Thanks.

I believe I have one in my stash.
Which 140 powered car ?
EM or LM, since you have both.
Your picture shows 66-69 parts but your car is listed as a 65.
The swivel at the trans are different.

Good catch Bob. Didn't realize that the 65 rod was different from the 66-69;
thought it was just the pivot.

I need a 65 accelerator rod.

I learned the hard way the 65 shaft from the bellcrank lever to the engine carburetor cross shaft is different versus the 66-69 shaft.

When I compared them, the main difference I found was the the 66-69 has more threads on the rod to move the pivot further down the shaft vs 65.

Clark's used parts does list the 65 as different vs. 66-69.

Hi Dan,

I have this one available for adoption? You simply pay actual shipping. Not sure of the year nor why it was brazed at one point? Let me know via PM smileys with beer

That's the 1965 unit --- the 66-69 is threaded almost all the way to the tapered area.

I ran across a '65 rod yesterday and it also has a patched spot. Strange.
