weber to bell crank throttle rod

I'm converting from a spica conversion kit to European linkage and manifold. Have everything except the rod that goes from the bell crank mounted to the lower part of the manifold to the ball on the 40DCOE. Original Spica rod went from above down. Can't find any sources for this rod. Linkage was a ton of fun to install...but it's in there.

Thanks in advance

Make one. VERY easy. Drill rod and ball end steel connectors from Centerline. Use the short rod Centerline sells as your guide. Make it too long, threading one end with a connector on the firewall ball, cut the rod <about> the right length, marked holding it in place. Thread that end, install #2 ball connector and adjust to -0- lash. Do NOT bend the long rod! It must push straight, horizontally. Too long, or bent, it will bow, sometimes with disasterous results at full throttle. {Don't ask.}

Agree with Gordon that these are easy to make.

But if you don't want to do that, Classic Alfa sells them all made up for $17. See: FL051/1 SHORT VERTICAL THROTTLE ROD - 45mm - Classic Alfa
