  • 1" Throttle body spacer need linkage spacers?

    I find that some places are saying these don't need the spacers for the linkage/cables. Is that true? i read about someone ruining their trans by not running on so I don't want to do the same

    Never heard of having to extend your linkage on a TBI. I did have to raise the linkage mount on my carb motor when I added a spacer.

        Ok, well I saw this:
        The throttle linkages/tv cable were on a bad angle with the spacer. CFM-Tech included spacers and bolts just for this reason and they worked excellent.
        This is why I mentioned about the spacers for the cables. Here is the post:

        Anyone? Is the CFM tech spacer the only one that includes these? Why would they include them if they were not needed

          I bet it makes the company look better if it comes with more stuff, so you feel better spending extra money on their spacer.

            Ok. if no one else needed them I'll just go for the cheapy on ebay. If it comes down to it, I can always make something to lift up the cables.

              When I put a spacer on my carb truck I used a 1 inch spacer from Tractor Supply under the bracket and I got an inch longer bolt.

                The throttle is OK without any additional spacers. Worst part is loosening the bracket that holds the fuel lines to the bell housing so that you can bolt the TBI back down.

                Make sure you readjust the TV cable. There are instructions on here on how to do it easily.

                  I used fuel line extensions, so I didn't loosen any bolts on the bellhousing.

                  And I didn't need to adjust anything.

                      Ok. If all i have to do is adjust the TV cable, that's no big deal
