Complete 6x2 direct linkage from back-bar to carburetors
Trims to fit 6x2 intakes with the following maximum dimensions:
Carb spacing on each bank : 5-1/2in
Distance between banks: 9-1/8in
Offset between banks: 1 inch
Part No. 9260-D
This Trim-to-Fit 6×2 direct linkage kit adapts to a wide variety of applications with maximum dimensions as given above. If in doubt, measure your manifold spacing.
The back-bar element comprises unique low-line brackets with rolled ends and Oilite self-lubricating bushes – one long and one short. Trim the long one to suit the offset between the two banks of carbs. Supported at four points for zero flex, the stainless steel back-bar shaft comes with two end stops to prevent lateral movement.
The carburetors are connected through six 9091K Superlink throttle levers with swivels – including two special swivels to mount the rod ends – plus two long link rods. The kit comes with four Stromberg ‘Snapback’ throttle return springs
The connection to your throttle pedal linkage is via one of the two long back-bar levers, or a further one (Stromberg kit 9096K) added anywhere along the back-bar shaft to align with your ‘pull’ point. Stromberg recommends a mechanical pedal link for all multi-carb systems.
The linkage comes pre-assembled with full instructions on trimming, installation and tuning. Click the other tabs to preview.
Designed for maximum versatility in operation, the long back-bar levers have three mounting points for flexible throttle response and leverage. For more information, check out our 6×2 Tuning Tips at the Stromberg Tech Center.
NOTE: This kit will not fit Holley or Edelbrock 94 carburetors as the idle mix screws are on the back where the brackets fit on the 97.
If you are planning a 6x2 for the street, here are some things to think about. Not just direct or progressive linkage adjustment, but jetting, pedal response, BIG97 primaries and more. Well worth a read!
