Re-thinking Carb linkage for DFEV install

When I was planning on the Dual 40-IDF setup on my '72 1608 a few years ago, I had planned to use the linkage design that our dear late friend Ken Dickson detailed on his early spiders.

Re: Wanted: FIAT Parts Computer... on loan!

Ummmm... dumb question time.

What Ed Zackerly do you mean by FIAT Parts Computer? A Computer that came from a FIAT Dealer, from back in the dark ages when such things actually existed?

That hasn't seen much weather or exposure to direct sunlight, but it was very well made, heavy plastic material with excellent adhesive. Still looks new today, a nice piece...
