I think I now know why the mid shaft was hitting the floatbowl on the rear carb. I think that when I rotated the manifold bellcrank, I failed to move the ball end to the inside of the attachment point.

Will have another stab at this tonight.

Really appreciate the help on this. Hard to believe that of all the work that I have done on this car, this one silly point has taken the most time to resolve.

I think that the issue is going to be in this arrangement combined with the pedal lever flipped the wrong way.

When the bell- crank was flipped to the correct orientation, the rod might have been on the outside and hence hitting the float.



FYI this is the way this bell- crank was when it arrived and the throttle did work. I imagine their fix was to flip the pedal lever as a solution.
