[GFS] RETURN SPRING ON 2/4S ON FURY ARE VERY IMPORTANT.!!!!!!



John,
 
    Thanks for refreshing my memory about the  straight linkage and the 
manifold on the 56 Fury. You are the one who called  that to my attention a while 
back. Below is a photos of the straight  linkage vs the progressive linkage 
below and springs. Although no one is talking  about it the springs themselves, 
they are very important on the 2/4  bbl Fury's. The bottom spring must be twice 
as big and have the long straight  piece at one end so it does not increase 
resistance as it pivots on  the carburetor. Springs without the long straight 
end build up resistance and  can keep the carbs from getting full throttle. 
>From my drag racing days I  have learned that completely opening up all 4 holes 
in the 2/4 manifold to one big opening for each carb gives you more power at 
high  RPM's and less power  at low RPM's from a standing start. The guys that 
did  this who were mostly Chevy guys on the drag strip always had a 
3.90--4.11-4.30  or 4.56 rear end ratio. 
 
                                                               Ron
 
PS. What good is 2/4's if you are not getting full  throttle.
PS 2  Thanks for the photo and Plymouth information  sheet
