That thing is gonna be the shiniest part of the car! My carb is ready and SHOULD be on it's way on the first available spaceship from their Jupiter headquarters...probably via Pluto.

I hope you can bolt it on and drive away.

That's pretty sharp for international freight. My own package will be on board the Nostromo - that's the ship in Alien where the crew get systematically knocked off by the creature. So my chances of ever seeing it are slim.

Finished standing in the rain doing gardens for the boss and thought !!!

Right now I can go fit the new carb to the 64 !!!

rain still coming down , so I stuck the 64 in the shed 

popped off the linkage 

undid the an fitting into the old carb … best I check it will fit the new Avs2……

Fail ! 
the old carter has a way bigger thread ( i think the old/bigger thread is the same as holly)

so I put it all back together and parked her back outside !! It’s Sunday here and there will be no one open that has the right a fitting to hook to my fuel line . 

One step forward …. One step back !

while under hood looking at the diffance of the linkages i noted i am going to have to make custom bracket for both the accelerator shaft and the trans shaft, the avs2 has nothing even close to the original carter ! :dancingpontiac:gota love aftermarket !!!
