3-In-1Quick Fuel Technology now offers its new Quick Link throttle control system. These rebuild and conversion kits are available for all 4150-style four-barrel carbs with mechanical secondaries. Each kit includes slabbed Teflon-coated throttle shafts, high-flow button-head throttle plate screws, Teflon bearing ribbons, and three different linkage rods that control when the secondary throttle shaft opens. The standard gold link opens the primary venturies 40 percent before opening the secondary plates. The black super-progressive link opens the primaries 60 percent before opening the secondaries. The silver 1-to-1 link opens both primaries and secondaries at the same time. These links are changeable in seconds with only a pair of pliers, with the carb still mounted on the intake manifold. Use the standard link for normal street driving. Switch to the super-progressive link at the strip to prevent the car from creeping as you run up against the converter before launch. Headed to the road course? Install the 1-to-1 link for precision throttle control. The Teflon shaft coating and Teflon bearing ribbons keep throttle effort light and provide an excellent seal against air and debris. All claims by the manufacturer.
